People in Central Bedfordshire are being warned after a spate of scam loft insulation calls.

The council’s trading standards team says it has been made aware of reports from people who have received an unsolicited telephone call, where the caller claims their loft insulation may not be energy efficient or could even cause health-related problems. The caller then offers to arrange for a ‘representative’ to visit their home to inspect the loft.

If you are concerned about what you have been told, always seek expert advice before agreeing to any work taking place.

“If you receive a call you suspect may be a scam, please report it to us by calling us on 0808 223 1133.”
