The problems start when people search for “Blue Badge application forms” a pop up comes on the screen and directs you to a fake website.

The fake sites look genuine but ask for £49 payment to ‘fast track’ or process your application.

Once you have paid there is no guarantee that they will process your application and you may just lose your money.

Trafford Council charges £10 for Blue Badges and only when your application is successful.

The safest way to apply for your Blue Badge is via; https://www.gov.uk/apply-blue-badge
