Residents have been receiving telephone calls claiming to be ringing from their local Council, working in collaboration with the NHS asking about a recent accident. No such collaboration has been set up with your local Council – be suspicious if you receive such a call.
Residents of Lancashire have also been receiving a call stating you may be awarded a Good Citizen Grant to the value of £3000 to £5000. The telephone number seemed to be London based. This is a scam and will be an attempt to get bank details from you or an attempt to obtain an advanced fee.
