The telephone preference service (TPS) is a valuable resource and is supported by the Dorset Police but recent instances have occurred where members of the public have registered on the TPS website and have later received a telephone call from a person who stated they are responding to the TPS registration and asking for a fee of £39 to complete the registration.
THIS IS A SCAM AND YOU SHOULD NOT PASS YOUR BANK OR CREDIT CARD DETAILS.
If you have been contacted by a person stating they are from the Telephone Preference Service and have paid money for this free service it is strongly advised that you report the incident to ACTION FRAUD on 0300 123 2040 as well as contacting your bank as soon as practical.
