PSNI warns of renewed wave of HMRC scammers targeting elderly

Mon, 26/03/2018 - 15:39 -- Editor

Northern Call Management Centre, PSNI has been receiving an increased number of calls especially from the elderly about phone calls they have received from HMRC.

THIS IS A SCAM. Thankfully the persons who have reported to us this morning have not passsed on any personal details or money, however there may be some who through one reason or another have been scammed and feel embarrassed to report it.

Do not feel embarrassed, these scammers are faceless persons at the end of a telephone who appear very confident and full of factual details which they have more than likely obtained from the internet.

DO NOT HAND OVER MONEY OR YOUR PERSONAL DETAILS.
