|I have been contacted by two of our Neighbourhood Watch schemes to advise of the following potential scams. Do please remain alert and if it doesn’t seem right check and check again, never be afraid to hang up the phone. |
Lloyds Banking – New Payee (Text Message) States: You have successfully been paired with a new device. Call 447780337*** if it is not you.
The person contacted a local Lloyds branch that confirmed it is not a message issued by them.
Sky Protect Insurance (Phone Call)
Caller: Claimed she was called Zara from Sky Protect Insurance, provided a call back number of 0203 8077*** this has been checked with Sky and is incorrect, this is an unrecognised London number.
Calling this could sign you up to a worthless expensive policy. The official Sky number is an 0800 number.
