Lancashire Trading Standards Service is warning Lancashire traders and consumers about counterfeit money-off coupons.

A large quantity of fake coupons for money off well-known brands has recently been discovered in Lancashire. The coupons appear to be copies of genuine coupons and were purchased by a Lancashire consumer over the internet.

A consumer used the coupons in a supermarket to buy groceries but when the supermarket discovered the fakes, the Police were called and the consumer’s groceries had to be returned. Contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline on 08454 04 05 06.
