11/06/2017: Telephone Preference Service Scam
Please be aware of a new phone scam hitting the Torridge area. An unsolicited phone call is received purporting to be from the TPS (Telephone Preference Service) asking if the recipient wishes to continue using the service and renew for a further period. The caller is very pleasant and friendly, and appears to know some of the receiver’s personal information such as phone number and address. Many of our members do use TPS and when they say that they wish to continue the caller tries to trick you into divulging your banking details. Obviously, these are not required by TPS and you should terminate the call immediately. The scam has been reported to ActionFraud, but we do not yet know the phone number where these calls are coming from. If you do receive such a call and are able to use the 1471 service to get the caller’s number, could you please pass it on to ActionFraud on 0300 123 2040 or via their online reporting page.
