Stop the Scammers


I have been campaigning door-to-door to stop the cowboys, rogue traders and nuisance callers in Blaenau Gwent.

It was a pleasure to back Age Cymru's Scams Awareness Month in May, but it should be an issue we are aware of all world round.

The rip-off merchants who prey on our most vulnerable can destroy lives with just one scam - which is why all we need to be vigilant.

There's more information at but I'll still be doing my bit in the months to come, whether that be handing out stickers you can put in your window to protect against cold callers or helping sign people up to services that protect against junk mail and nuisance phone calls.

The average scam costs a victim £1,200, and that's not including the devastation it can have on our wellbeing. We and our loved ones deserve protection from hoaxes.
