Scam?

Unread post by Welsh Daph » Thu Nov 29, 2018 12:33 pm

Had a phone call whilst driving earlier, left a voice message threatening legal action if I didn't return the call to:020 3289 5788
Anybody else had a call from this woman called Lisa Williams?

Definitely a scam Daph. They say they are from HMRC (that is the UK government tax department Fanch) and threaten legal action if you don't call back. Ignore, delete and block the number if you have that facility, although scammers do tend to use different numbers or change them frequently.

https://who-called.co.uk/Number/02032895788. Not a bad site for checking spurious numbers.

Uk telephone numbers can be purchased and used from abroad so the calls don't necessarily come from where the STD code would suggest...........may well be from France, you know what a bunch of scammers they are, especially the hairy ones :lol:
