Scam Survey

Alert message sent 15/12/2020 11:15:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch Scotland


Residents should be aware of a scam survey being promoted and conducted via social media in West Dunbartonshire.

The survey fraudulently states that it is supported by West Dunbartonshire Council to research how residents have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.  This is untrue.

Participants in the scam are asked to provide personal details.  This kind of information can be used to make fraudulent applications for funding, benefits or even credit.  Please be extremely careful and ensure you only share personal information, including your name, address and date of birth with known and trusted callers or online sources.

If you have been victim to this or any other scam, this can be reported to Trading Standards via Advice Direct Scotland on 0808 164 6000 or contact Police Scotland on 101
