For your information…

An HMRC scam has been doing the rounds in Dorset targeting elderly & vulnerable people. Dorset Police has been advised of a second scam whereby individuals are now claiming to be Dorset Police using the 01202 222 222 telephone number requesting details from residents.

Dorset Police would never ask you for your personal details on the telephone and we would never call you from the 01202 222 222 telephone number.

Please be aware and stay vigilant. Do not pass any personal information over the phone or via email. If you receive a call please report this to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.

Please just hang up on these scam callers. Visit for more advice.

Many thanks.
