Police have been alerted to a company sending cold callers out to homes in Lincolnshire and advertising free hearing aids.
The company is canvassing people in order to allow them to contact your previous employment to claim compensation for hearing loss.
If you wish to apply for a hearing aid these are free on the NHS for those suffering loss of hearing.
You should initially contact your local doctor who can arrange for suitable appointments to be made.
Should you make an appointment with any cold calling company you have by right 14 days to cancel any contractual obligations.
Alternatively please contact Trading Standards on 0345 4040506 for further advice.
