Trading Standards have become aware of a potential scam relating to the sale and purchase of land in Florida. Be very careful if you’re approached by anyone about this.
Trading Standards advise you should always be very wary of promises of investment opportunities. If you’re planning to purchase land anywhere, always do lots of research and get trusted legal advice from an independent solicitor or legal advisor.
Never agree to anything or sign any documents before thoroughly checking out all details. Members of the public have previously lost lots of money to this type of scam when either the land didn’t exist or there turned out to be other hidden costs attached to the purchase.
Be very careful…and remember if something seems too good to be true, it usually is.
If you want to report something you think is suspicious, please contact either Citizens Advice Consumer Services on 03454 040506 or North Wales Police on 101.
