iCAN is the Warrington Consumer Alert Network. Anyone in Warrington can become a member of iCAN and receive information for free by email, text or phone. Messages are broadcast on a wide range of consumer issues and are used to warn members about current cons and scams so that they are better protected. Members are encouraged to spread the word so that information is passed onto friends, family and neighbours. Members also act as the “eyes and ears” of Trading Standards and pass back information which often allows Trading Standards or the Police to take action against rogue traders.
Messages can be about the following:
- rogue doorstep traders
- anti-social behaviour
- car crime
- distraction burglary
- free local advice and support services
- free training opportunities provided by not-for-profit organisations
- the availability of grants for home insulation
