Free call blocking and screening units available for older people

Scams come in many forms; uninvited contact is received by email, letter, and telephone or in person making false promises to con victims out of money.

Age UK can refer older people who are at risk of being scammed to Friends Against Scams for a free call blocking and screening unit called Truecall. Truecall is a device that plugs into the back of a landline and screens out nuisance and scams calls.

If the older person's application is successful, the device will be installed and set up by a qualified engineer.

For more information about scams, visit friends against scams: https://www.friendsagainstscams.org.uk/

Ring Age UK Kirklees and Calderdale, to find out how to apply for the scheme: 01484 535994
