Be­ware of fraud calls

Cre­ative In­te­rior De­signs

Star Courier (Surrey & Hants) - - NEWS -

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.
