Just had a phone call from this number02080402745
Do not speak to anyone on this number they are trying to sell you n95 face masks and sanitiser for £29.99. This is a scam
Sounded genuine but checked number after call. They ask if you are over 50, how many in household and mention government guidelines about wearing face mask outside. After unfortunately giving my address alarm bells rang do not give any details. I did NOT give any bank details and said I had them already. Please be aware.

It’s horrifying how quickly the mean and crafty come up with new scams to fleece the unsuspecting.

How quickly these evil minds work.
Unless a recognisable number appears, it can go on ringing.
