Rother District Citizens Advice is urging people to act on scams.

Rother District Citizens Advice is spreading the word about scams to help more people across Rother from being conned.

The Charity is taking part in Scams awareness Month, a campaign encouraging people to report and talk about scams running throughout July.

The drive to get more people reporting scams comes as national Citizens Advice reveals a 17% increase in people being scammed after purchasing 'phantom goods'.

The scam works by conning shoppers into buying high value items, mainly online, which turn out not to exist. The average loss was £1,100.  People were most likely to be scammed when buying cars, flights and furniture. Other 'phantom goods ' included jewellery and cameras.

If you are worried or have been scammed please contact:
