Flu Jab Scam

According to NHS England, an elderly lady has lost £5000 in a recent scam. The lady was called by a person purporting to be a GP at her local practice. The fraudster informed the victim that for a £1.50 fee the GP could attend their home to administer the flu jab and requested bank details in order to confirm the appointment.

A spokesperson from NHS England and NHS Improvement, said: "If someone claiming to be from the NHS contacts you by phone and asks for payment, please be aware they could be a criminal trying to trick you."

HMRC Scam Calls

We have received a recent report from a CAPASP supporter and Good Neighbour that there is a very persistent new version of the HMRC and Mastercard telephone scams been mentioned before. The new version is an automated call stating that the resident’s internet provider is going to terminate their services and that you must press 1 to be connected to an ‘executive advisor’. Our informant tells us that they received this call 8 times in one morning alone.

As before, please pass on this message far and wide to alert others within your community. The simple advice is to not press 1, or any other key that is instructed, but to simply hang up as I suspect there would be a hefty connection charge or a very threatening or persuasive person awaiting your attention.
