Fake telephone calls to the public purporting warrant for tax evasion

We have received a number of calls from members of the public reporting a phishing scam currently in operation.

Calls are being made and when answered, an automated message plays telling the caller that they are wanted on a warrant for tax evasion.

A further number is given, which the caller is instructed to dial.

When that number is dialed, the caller is then asked to disclose personal details which could be used to commit fraud.

We would urge people to particularly make elderly or vulnerable family, friends or neighbours aware of this scam to ensure that they do not fall victim.

If you receive a call of this nature, please contact Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040. Reports can also be made by visiting www.actionfraud.police.uk
