MCGLONE WARNS ABOUT BOGUS HMRC TELEPHONE CALLS

SDLP MLA for Mid-Ulster, Patsy McGlone has warned people to be very wary of bogus telephone calls from people claiming to be from HMRC.

Mr McGlone continued: "I have been speaking to a number of people over the weekend who have had phone calls from people claiming to represent HMRC/Inland Revenue. These callers either leave a message on the answerphone or ask the person who answers that an amount of tax is now payable to the Inland Revenue and that a call should be made to a particular telephone number.

"This is a complete scam! The telephone number is a premium rate number and victims of this con are left with hefty phone bills.

"Please be wary of these callers and, if in doubt at all, just end the call promptly.

"People can register not to receive unsolicited sales or marketing telephone calls at the Telephone Preference Service on 03450700707 or online at www.tpsonline.org.uk . This service is free."
