Neath Port Talbot warning over heating grant scam

Fraudsters are targeting homes in the Neath Port Talbot area claiming to be from the council and offering bogus heating and insulation grants, say trading standards officers.

Householders are being asked for their personal banking details or for a payment upfront, warn the council.

The bogus officials tend call at homes during the evening.

The council said the grant offers are a scam and people should not hand over personal details or money.
