We’ve had two similar messages from readers asking others to be aware of a phone scam this week.
This alert goes out to everybody to be mindful of a phone scam where you may receive a phone call from “HMRC” saying if you don’t press ‘1’ for an unpaid debt, a warrant will be put out for arrest.
Whilst most people would recognise this as a scam, it’s a warning to everybody to be careful, especially those people who may be more vulnerable to such things. The number on both occasions appears to be in the Manchester area starting with 0161.
If you get this call. Don’t speak. Don’t press anything. Hang up at once. Block the number.
