Scam Telephone Call- ‘Good Citizen Award Grant’ Print
Friday, 21 August 2015 09:03

A telephone call has been received by a resident in the Wrexham area from a male purporting to be from ’The Government’. The caller stated that, because the lady had been a ‘good citizen’ the government had given her an award – in this case, of £8,000. She was asked to telephone an ‘0207’ number and quote a reference number. The caller spoke with an unidentified foreign accent. Thankfully, the resident did not ring the telephone number.

Initial research into this call suggest that if the resident had made the call they would have been requested to pay an up front registration fee of over £100. They would probably have been asked for their bank details too.
