Warning – Telephone Scam

One of the members of the church e-mail group has received a malicious phone call which purported to be from HMRC and advised her that serious legal action had been taken against her, that the case was time-limited and she was to call back a certain number.

She put the phone down before the caller gave her the number, pressed 1471, noted the number that had rung her, then used a neighbour’s phone to report the incident to Devon & Cornwall Police, who put her in touch with the Action Fraud Police line.  The case is now being investigated.

Please let as many people as possible know about this scam.
