CAS echoes First Minister’s scam advice

Citizens Advice Scotland (CAS) has echoed advice given by the First Minister today as a result of reports of fake callers pretending to work for the Test and Protect service.

In response to the reports, the charity is highlighting scams advice available through Citizens Advice Bureaux and on the Advice for Scotland website.

CAS Financial Health spokesperson, Myles Fitt, said: “Since the start of the pandemic, Citizens Advice Bureaux across Scotland have continued to give advice on scams and dealing with their effects. 

“These scams are usually about extracting money, often from the most vulnerable, and we echo the First Minister’s comments - the Test and Protect service will only ask about people’s movements and contact with others, nothing else.

“Never give out financial information and if you have any concerns that you might have been scammed visit for the contact details of your local Citizens Advice Bureau.”
