Cornwall is warned to be careful of pop-up ads on the internet, after a raft of complaints.

The Duchy's Trading Standards is warning us off one advertising face cream.

People who have clicked on it have ended up on a monthly subscription and some up to £90 out of pocket.

Julia Groves, Cornwall Trading Standards Authorised Officer said: "We are encouraging anyone who has responded to such offers for products, including face cream and slimming tablets, to report the matter to the Citizens Advice Consumer Centre on 08454 04 05 06 and Action Fraud at 0300 123 2040 or by visiting their website at http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/

"We are reiterating to consumers not only at Christmas time but at all times of the year, not to respond to offers which seem too good to be true as invariably they are.  Experience tells us that victims of these sorts of scams face a great deal of time spent on recovering their money through the card provider.  At the very least you should carefully read any terms and conditions and know the physical whereabouts of any traders that you deal with."
