SCAM ALERT : Local number claiming to be HMRC

Alert message sent 21/03/2020 16:31:00

Information sent on behalf of Humberside Police

An Bogus caller has been reported in your

Dear resident,

We have recently received a report of a suspicious telephone call, where an automated messaged was played claiming to be from HMRC.

The message advised that the target had their national insurance number compromised and was directed to press 1 otherwise legal action would be taken. 

What was strange about this call is that it came from a local number. This may lead people to believe the call be genuine, so please be vigilant when receiving calls of this nature. 

More advice on this type of scam can be found on the link below.

Kind regards,

Humberside Police
