Cold Caller Offering Services to Older/Vulnerable Persons

Trading Standards are warning residents to be on their guard following an incident where a vulnerable resident was contacted by telephone by someone trying to sell him a system similar to Wrexham CBC’s “Telecare” system. Despite declining the offer made over the phone a man still called at the resident’s home apparently to try and sell the product. The man carried no identification and left no information. Wrexham CBC’s Telecare service provider have confirmed that these calls were not made by them and that their staff always carry identification.
 
Please exercise great caution with cold calls from traders offering any goods or services but especially those offering services that are specifically intended for older or more vulnerable householders. It is vitally important that those businesses offering such products are legitimate.
 
Wrexham CBCs Telecare service is run in partnership with Sanctuary 365 who provide the service on behalf of the Council. The Telecare system makes it possible to raise an alarm or summon help through the home telephone line at the press of a button.  If you, or someone you know might benefit from a Telecare system you can find out more about it, what it can do and how much it will cost by calling 01978 292075.
 
If you want to report any suspicious activity please call the Police on 101 or the Citizens Advice Consumer Service on 03454 040506
For more general consumer advice call Citizens Advice Consumer Service on 03454 040506

Badger Found Dead Survey

Have you found a dead badger?
 
As part of the Bovine TB Eradication Programme badgers found dead throughout Wales are being collected for post mortem examination. The survey, which begins today, will run for at least the whole of 2015.
 
The results of the survey will be used to investigate the relationship between bovine TB infection in badgers and cattle. It will help us develop policy at both local and national levels. It will also add to epidemiological reporting and be used in enhanced TB breakdown management.
 
The Badger Found Dead Survey in the Intensive Action Area (IAA) in north Pembrokeshire is continuing as normal. This survey applies to the rest of Wales.
 
What to do if you find a dead badger?
 
If you come across a dead badger please note the location and call the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) on 0300 303 8268. The line is open normal office hours, Monday to Friday. APHA will, where practicable, endeavour to collect all carcasses reported.
 
It is important that you do not handle dead badgers or interfere with a carcass in any way.
