We have received reports from residents in Cornwall of persons cold calling by telephone stating that they are from the Department of Work and Pensions and give a story along the lines of money being owed or a variation of this, they ask the resident for personal details such as national insurance numbers etc. They have been forceful in their manner.
This is a scam. Please do not give out any personal information to any cold caller and hang up on any similar calls. Please inform neighbours of this.
If you have any information or concerns please phone 101.
