Free Call Blocking Units
Edit 25 October, these have now run out. "The team had an unprecedented response to the project and all units have now been applied for. This has highlighted the growing problem of scam and nuisance calls, and the vital need for these call blocking units. The units went much faster than anticipated and this was certainly helped by all of your support for the project. Due to this overwhelming response to the project, there has been some delays in the time expected to receive the unit. We have let all applicants know via email or letter but please inform any applicants of this if they ask."
The team are looking forward to seeing the difference that will be made for consumers who applied and hope to be able to do another project in the future in order to reach more people.
The National Trading Standards (NTS) Scams Team have received funding from the Department for Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) to supply and fit free call blocking units for people who receive scam and nuisance phone calls. The units supplied will be the trueCall Secure units.
Applications open on Tuesday 15th October. Complete the online application at the Friends Against Scams website.
