Residents warned of free insulation hoax

Residents are being warned by Essex County Council of a scam currently doing the rounds.

The hoax is in the form of a bogus letter offering free cavity wall and loft insulation to home owners and private tenants in the Essex area.

There are reports of a telephone marketing campaign too.

Essex County Council, who do not offer free cavity wall or loft insulation, have reported the matter to Essex Police.

Residents are being advised to ignore the letter (an example of which is pictured) and file it in the recycling.
