Jay Beeston was scammed after giving out her credit card details for postage

She thought she would only have to pay postage.

But the seller charged her for the goods through her two credit cards.

And Jay, 75, had to call in trading standards officials to help her recover the cash from one of the credit card providers.

Jay, from Sudbury, Derbys, said: “The credit card bills were such a shock.

“I want to stop this happening to others.”

Trading standards officials warned buyers to be on their guard.

Derbyshire councillor Carol Hart said: “These adverts are just a scam and the traders know they are tricking people.”
