Melton residents warned to make sure they are getting a genuine ‘green deal’

Have your say

Melton residents are being urged to be cautious after a rise in reported ‘green deal’ scams in Leicestershire.

Trading Standards officials say victims have been called by people offering to carry out a free survey, on the promise of saving them money on energy bills. But in some cases people have paid £300 for a survey while in others no survey was done at all. If you need advice ring the Citizens Advice consumer helpline on 03454 040506.
