Be Aware! National Insurance Scam via Phone

We have been made aware of a scam that is circulating where the offender is claiming that either your National Insurance number has been compromised or it has been used in serious crime.

Residents have received an automated telephone call, promptly followed by the usual request to “Press 1 on the keypad”.

DO NOT DO THIS. You may feel pressured into doing so as the message may state they are from the National Crime Agency. They are not. This is a scam.

If you receive a call claiming your National Insurance number has been compromised and asks you to press any button on your keypad, please terminate the call.
