We have received reports from residents of persons cold calling by telephone stating that they are from the department of work and pensions who give a story along the lines of money being owed or a variation of this. They ask for personal details such as national insurance numbers etc. and they have sometimes been forceful in their manner.
This is a scam. Please do not give out any personal information to any cold caller and hang up on any similar calls. Please inform neighbours of this.
If you have any information or concerns please contact the Police on 101.
