Fake law firm warning

A WARNING has been issued to Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire residents after calls from suspected fraudsters posing as a law firm.

A Trading Standards spokesman said that homeowners have been convinced to set up Family Prosperity Trusts to avoid their homes being sold to cover future care needs.

Some have signed up to hand over between £1,000 to £3,500 but it is thought the document may not be watertight, leaving the property at risk.

Anyone concerned should call Citizen’s Advice’s helpline on 08454 040506.
