A warning has been issued by CFW's legal adviser about an advertising sponsorship scam being targeted at businesses in the private care sector - particularly those in North Wales.
A group known to be based in north west England is calling businesses to seek 'sponsors' for a supposed local police community liaison team's child protection training.
In a similar scam several years ago one unsuspecting CFW member paid a lot of money on repeat 'advertising' for charity booklets that weren't properly distributed.
The scam is being operated by a group of people based in the North West of England, well known to the authorities.
