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.

 

WHAT HAPPENS

 

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.

 

If you are unsure if a call is from AGE UK, contact your local Age UK

 

For advice and to report this, please contact the Advice Centre

 

Please warn vulnerable family members, friends and neighbours.
