Press opportunity – Devon & Somerset Trading Standards Service

Devon and Somerset Training Standards Service is hosting a training event for postmen and women at the Taunton Sorting Office in Chip Lane between 6.30am and 8am on Tuesday 23 September.

The training aims to educate posties about scam mail and what role they have to play in identifying victims and stopping the cycle.

This is part of a nationwide training exercise, with more than 3949 Royal Mail employees having received the training over 65 offices this year alone, with more than 1,000 new suspected victims being identified as a result.

If you are a member of the media and interested in attending, please give Trading Standards Officer Rachel Holden a call on 07966 566388 to confirm.
