The group also released the latest alert message to members which is as follows:

Reports are being received of residents receiving bogus calls and messages offering “refunds” by people claiming to be acting on behalf of “Thomas Cook”, the travel agency who recently went into liquidation. We would urge people to be vigilant of all unsolicited calls, texts or social media messages that ask for personal or financial details, and not to click on the links in unexpected emails.

If you are receiving a lot of unwanted calls, consider talking to your land line provider or purchasing a telephone with call blocking functions. The Government has produced advice for all those affected by the closure of Thomas Cook. More general consumer advice about holidays can be found on the Nottinghamshire County Council (NCC) website. Links to both Thomas Cook and NCC website articles are available from this ALERT as it appears on our website homepage.
