Premium rate ‘Insolvency Service’ phone scam
Members of the public are being warned not to fall for a telephony scam which asks you to make premium-rate calls to the Insolvency Service.
The Insolvency Service is a Government agency that supports people in financial distress, tackling financial wrongdoing and maximising returns to creditors. They have been made aware of a scam where members of the public are receiving telephone messages to make unscheduled and unnecessary calls to the Insolvency Service. Not only are unsuspecting members of the public being asked to make unnecessary calls but they are being asked to dial a telephone number that although does connect to the Insolvency Service, is not one of their official numbers and is premium-rate that costs a lot of money.
