Scammer claiming to be Age UK
We have received reports of a resident in Ashford being targeted by a Scammer claiming to be Age UK.
You get a telephone call from someone saying they are Age UK - They ask you questions including the name of your Doctors Surgery and any medication you take.
WHAT TO DO
This is a scam – Age UK would not call and ask for personal information
End the telephone call and make sure the line has cleared.
