The Scottish SPCA are issuing a warning about bogus Inspectors trying to remove animals from properties. Reports have come in from Renfrewshire and Perthshire areas but they are asking everyone to be vigilant as they could move to different areas.
They are using a white van with Scottish SPCA stickers on it. Genuine SPCA vans are predominantly black with the branding as shown in the image below.
Genuine Inspectors will be able to produce photographic ID and will be happy to provide you with their vehicle registration.
If you are unsure about someone who comes to your door please ask them to wait outside and call the SSPCA immediately.
Inspectors will respect your need to do this. The confidential animal helpline can be reached on 03000 999 999. Find out more on the following link:
