Telephone Scam Alert!  

 

   

We have had a report of a Kent resident being called by a company claiming to be a domestic appliance warranty provider ‘Domestic and General’  

   

 

 

What happens

You are cold-called by telephone

•The criminal knows your name, address and information on the items covered by the warranty

•If you say that they are not your warranty provider they then attempt to unnerve you by saying they will cancel your policy

 

What to do

•Hang up

•Call your warranty provider, if you have one, on the number on your paperwork to check if you have concerns

•Find out more on the Domestic and General scam

•More advice and to report to Action Fraud

 

   

 

 

Please warn vulnerable family members, friends and neighbours.  

 

 

 

 

DOORSTEP CRIME IS FINANCIAL ABUSE
