Another scam warning

Post by Pighunter » Thu 21 Feb 2019 11:08

Just to let everyone know, I had a call this morning saying that a Company had received a letter in my name marked private and confidential addressed to the wrong place and asking me to call 08 99 34 28 37 quoting a reference number that they gave me to arrange for it to be forwarded. The call came from an 04 68 number. Seemed plausible enough, although when I said I'd give them my address to forward it to, she said I'd have to call the number she gave me to make the arrangements.

Being ever suspicious I checked out the number online and sure enough it is a scam, so look out for this one I haven't come across before. Apparently the number is a premium rate one.
