Telephone scam targets people in Swale
KCC Trading Standards is warning residents of a telephone scam targeting residents in the Swale area.
A hoax telephone caller claims to be from Kent County Council, the caller is trying to make an appointment to fit a “compulsory bird bath” in your garden and asks for a cheque for £50. They may be seeking an opportunity to get into your home and commit distraction burglary.
A new scam is targeting Kent residents. Scammers are sending a calling card for a parcel by post
Once you call the telephone number listed on your calling card, the scammers are very likely to ask you for a payment in order to re-schedule the delivery.
The National Fraud Intelligence are aware of this type of fraud and they're blocking calls to all telephone numbers provided by reports. Unfortunately, as soon as they close down one telephone number, the fraudsters switch to a new one.
You will never be asked to pay for a missed parcel delivery and you will never be asked for your bank details.
For advice and to report issues to KCC Trading Standards contact

Cut up your cardboard
Our refuse trucks are struggling to effectively crush large pieces of cardboard and boxes.
This takes up a lot of space and reduces the amount of waste the truck can hold - resulting in the crew either making two trips to the recycling site, or putting it in landfill.
We're asking you to make sure that individual pieces of cardboard are no larger than 60cm2 - about the length of your arm. These can then be bundled flat for collection.
We'll be putting stickers on large pieces of cardboard we can’t take, asking you to break it down for the next collection. For more details about this, visit www.canterbury.gov.uk/cardboard
If your cardboard is business waste, visit commercial waste for details on how to dispose of it properly.
