Nuisance and Fraudulent Phone CAlls

We have become aware that a number of residents have received phone calls from people purporting to be from the Police, HMRC and PPI Companies. These callers are requesting residents purchase iTunes / PlayStation vouchers etc. in order to resolve a problem. Some are directly asking for money. Once the vouchers are purchased the activation codes are given over the phone which the scammers then use. The majority of these victims or intended victims have been elderly. Please be aware of these scam calls.
