Scam Alert - Telford, Newport and Bridgnorth

Please be aware of the following:

Please find detailed below (in italics) of a scam that a member of staff from the Local Fraud Team at Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust received recently.

 ‘When I got home yesterday there was a message on my answer phone from a Mike Anderson, claiming that I was a suspect in a crime that had been committed in Shropshire and that if I or my lawyer did not ring them as soon as possible that I would be arrested either at home or work.

 I checked the phone number on 'who rang me' and found that it was a 'firm' of solicitors called Paul and

I rang the police and they had had at least 5 other calls about these people.

When you ring them they say you owe money to someone and that if you do not pay there and then you will be arrested.’
