Isle of Wight Council

The council is committed and determined to achieving long-term security for Dinosaur Isle Museum, together with its world-renowned collection and its museum accreditation. The museum is an integral part of any future regeneration of the Bay area - so its future sustainability, growth and offer is essential - and in relation to this, the council is keen to identify potential partners for its further development and long-term future.

SCAM ALERT Unfortunately, there is another scam doing the rounds on the Island currently. Residents have reported being contacted with calls relating to iTunes vouchers. Scammers are targeting residents stating that they owe money and telling them to buy iTunes vouchers from local shops to repay the debt. After the victim has purchased the voucher, the victim is asked to pay by sharing the 16 digit code on the back of the card with the caller over the phone. DO NOT BUY ANY VOUCHERS FOR A STRANGER – IF YOU RECEIVE A CALL LIKE THIS, HANG UP STRAIGHT AWAY. To report any scams, please contact trading.standards@iow.gov.uk or call (01983) 823371.
