WEST Dunbartonshire Council is warning residents to watch out for scam calls.

It comes after the council became aware that cold callers are approaching residents offering new boilers and claiming to be working on behalf of them.

The council never sends employees to undertake cold calling and will always advise tenants by letter if they are working in your area.

In addition, all genuine council employees will be wearing identification.

If you think a person may be part of a scam, you can report this to West Dunbartonshire Trading Standards via their partners Advice Direct Scotland by calling 0808 800 9060.
