THE fight against scam artists continues in Hampshire after a number of residents were told they would be arrested for not paying their tax bills.
The scammers called victims and claimed to be from HM Revenue and Customs, threatening arrest for unpaid taxes.
Fortunately, the victims realised it was a scam and refused to hand over any cash, said Hampshire Constabulary.
Now the force is warning residents about these calls and urging them to remain vigilant.
Anyone who receives a suspicious call is urged to refuse to hand over money or bank details, and report the incident immediately. Call police on 101 to report incidents.
