Flintshire County Council Trading Standards are warning of a new scam.
Consumers are receiving cold calls purporting to be from the Council telling them that they have to pay to have their black bin emptied and asking for their bank card details.
You do not have to pay to have your black bin emptied, this is a scam.
If you receive a call such as this put the phone down immediately, do not engage with the scammers. Details of current arrangements for refuse collection are on the Flintshire County Council website.
