I've had two phone calls to my mobile in recent weeks saying my N.I has been used in fraudulent activity in Wales. I wait for the man in the bowler hat to come chapping my door before I respond lol

There’s also a text scam going about.

I’ve had a couple of text messages this week telling me I have to pay £2.99 in charges before my parcel can be delivered. There’s also a link to a website to make payment.

I was with someone recently that took a call from someone saying there was a warrant out for his arrest due to unpaid tax and "offerring" to take payment over the phone.
He politely told them to post the details to his address and he would review them.

Sadly there are some punters who are taken in by these scams.

I find them almost entertaining - HMRC will issue a warrant for my arrest - that`ll be a good trick, seeing as the tax people don`t have such powers.

Surprised today that my phone spammed a text by itself.Not that I`d have fallen for it as I don`t have a TSB account but quite impressed that the phone itself dumped it as some people do fall for scams.

One morning, before lunchtime, we received FOUR calls from the SAME con merchant warning that BT would cut off our service if we didn`t speak to a customer service assistant by pressing 1..........we are with TalkTalk !!!
