New type of Fraud

Published: 01 September 2020

A new fraud has been bought to my attention whereby victims are contacted on the telephone by someone stating the victim has outstanding PPI claim of several thousand pounds which will be redeemed after the victim pays a fee of £300 to someone who will attend their address to collect. This of course is a scam and no such outstanding PPI claim exists. Remember the best way to protect yourself against scam telephone calls is to purchase a call blocking device or a new phone with call blocking technology. Alternatively contact your phone provider to discuss what call blocking options they can provide for you.
