Cold Caller Alert

Cold Caller Alert

We have received a report from a Fylde resident of a man cold calling telling people they have dangerous trees in their gardens and claiming their boss is a manager at Fylde council called ‘Alec Jones’. He apparently takes a phone number and then pretends to take that back to his office where his ‘boss’ will call to give a price to remove the tree, although it seems that the boss is the same man. Please be aware that this is not an employee of Fylde council and is in no way associated so please be cautious.

We advise that you never give out personal details or money to anyone unless you are sure it is safe to do so. You can always contact us online or by phone if you are unsure and we can verify this for you.
