HALTON Trading Standards has produced an online quiz which shows you what to look out for in different types of scams.

Scams are misleading or fraudulent offers designed to con you out of money. They can be received in the post, by email, telephone, text or face to face.

Halton Clr Dave Cargill, board member for Trading Standards, said: "We can all be taken in by scams, especially if we’re busy or distracted. Some of them look really credible.

“Hopefully this quiz will help you spot a scam before it stings you.”
