Another scam

Alert message sent 06/03/2019 16:20:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

 This came back from a resident after I sent the last warning out, please pass these on.........

Though we have not had any scam calls about Council Tax, we do have regular calls about BT planning to disconnect our landline or internet. We know it is not from BT as they don't operate like that. Further, the calls show a different phone number on our caller display and they use unallocated area codes, this morning's call was said to be from 01781 165390 - chich does not exist! The area code has never been allocated to any telephone service. There is a query in today's Daily Mail Finance section where someone is asking about the calls and the newspaper reply is that it is a scam. So please warning others that this unexpected call is a scam attempt. The calls usually come around 8.45 AM.
