The same as the above. originally we placed an advert in the Western Guardian. In hindsight I should have known better but did ask for a copy of the paper as proof but despite several phone calls never received one (suprise suprise!) that was last autumn. I didn't really think anything of until Birmingham news contacted me saying that they had seen the advert in their grandmothers paper!! (so I thought it was obviously ok)and placed an advert in Birmingham news. I even have an invoice for it, but haven't been able to find proof of an advert anywhere.

In July I was contacted by email by a company called Birmingham News, incorporating Midlands Weekly. The email from Natasha Pugh, (with poor grammar and spelling) offered 12 months advertising of our holiday accommodation in their weekly publication and on-line for £40+VAT. I was unable to find this newspaper on the internet, so called her back and asked for a website address, which was given as http://www.birminghamnewsweekly.co.uk
I was told this is a new publication, that was why they were offering such a good deal. I accepted the offer, but refused to give them my card details, which they tried to insist on. Instead I posted a cheque to the address in Rugby. Four weeks later, after constantly phoning, emailing and faxing messages to them I had no further contact from them, and my ad is not on their website. In the past week I have received several more phone calls from the same, or very similar numbers, all Rugby codes, offering a similar deal on advertising, but always naming a different publication. Yesterdays caller said they were the Western Guardian, based in Devon and Cornwall. I asked why they were calling from a Rugby phone number and the caller didn't answer my question. The person calling got very pushy, then quite aggressive when I told him I do not wish to advertise with them, before hanging up. I'm just pleased I sent a cheque, as it has never been cashed.

Do not let these scammers get away with it! Call Action Fraud ( internet police) I did after this number scammend me -and they were really helpful. The more intelligence they get from people the quicker these scammers get what they deserve. Ring 0300 123 2040 for Action fraud or visit their website

Very plausible scam! I received a cold call regarding an advert placed in Smallhoder magazine for a property I had for sale.The caller offered a package to advertise in the Western Guardian and said he was doing a feature on smallholdings for sale. He charged £40+VAT.I have now put a hold on my cards and reported the incident to Trading standards. Hopefully he will be investigated justice served!

I was contacted by someone on this number offering 4 weeks advertising in the Western Guardiam for £30, as far as I can see the paper dosen't exist. If it sounds to good to be true it usually is.
