Pembrokeshire Telephone Scam
If you receive a call from 01788 574832, beware!
We have been advised that callers from this number say they are from “The Pembrokeshire Guide”. When they are challenged to give their name and to state whether they are from the County Council, they hang up.
On other occasions, the caller has said they are from “Great Days Out “, and becomes abusive when told they are not needed.
DON’T FALL VICTIM TO THESE SCAMS!
The Tourism Team at Pembrokeshire County Council only makes initial contact via the rate card, which was posted out in late May.
We only phone if we need to discuss your requirements in more detail, and when we phone we will always identify ourselves as Pembrokeshire County Council Tourism Team.
Normally, payment for an advert in the Pembrokeshire Holiday Guide is made by cheque when you return the booking form. We would again contact you by post if you had sent in a form without a cheque, or if there were a problem with the cheque.
If you are in any doubt about the authenticity of anyone claiming to represent the Pembrokeshire Guide, please call us on 01437 775516 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
