Information sent on behalf of Cambridgeshire Constabulary

Dear E-coppers,

The following has been passed to us from Fenland District Council (FDC) although FDC message is for Wisbech residents I would like to pre-empt and reassure Fenland residents...
 
RESIDENTS ARE BEING WARNED ABOUT POTENTIAL SCAM RELATING TO DOUBLE GLAZED WINDOWS.
 
FDC have been made aware that some residents in Wisbech are receiving leaflets through their doors stating that unless they upgrade their double glazing windows to 'A' rating before April 2018, they will be penalised in their Council Tax bills next year.

These leaflets are nothing to do with FDC and having double glazing (or not) has no bearing on Council Tax bills.

If you receive or have received a letter through your door please contact trading standards and provide the details to them!
Alternatively you can post it to Wisbech Police Station for my attention if possible with your details enclosed and I will pass it to FDC and Trading Standards.
Please could I ask if you can forward this message to anybody in your community you feel might benefit from knowing about this scam.

Kind regards Julie Bailey
Crime Reduction and Community Safety Officer.
