Welcome to Citizens Advice Thanet   



Citizens Advice Thanet is aware that cold-callers are falsely claiming to be from the CAB and offering a Debt Advice Service. 

This is a SCAM!

However, clients who have visited, telephoned or emailed our office at Thanet might have genuine communication from Citizens Advice Thanet.

CAB service NEVER makes unsolicited calls to anyone asking for their personal and bank details and nor would any reputable organisation. If you get such a call it is a SCAM.
