PENSIONERS are being offered a chance to pop to the shop for tips on how to outwit con artists.

Care provider Home Instead Senior Care has teamed-up with scam awareness charity, Think Jessica, for a new campaign to show shoppers how to avoid scams.

Advisers will be on hand at Dudley’s Tesco supermarket, Birmingham Road, on Saturday February 1, from 10am until 2pm, sharing information on common scams which target the elderly and what to do when people fall victim to a scam.
