We have received reports of telephone scammers once again targeting people in Kent with the threat of a lawsuit and arrest warrant if the resident did not pay the scammers.
Don't worry, this is a scam
Phone scams are a common way for criminals to con people out of money using various tricks to get your personal or financial information.
What to do:
- Hang up and don't return their calls.
- NEVER disclose any personal information such as bank details or date of birth, no matter who the person claims to be.
- If you have already given money to scammers, contact Kent Police by calling 101 and you can also report it to Action Fraud. The information you give to Action Fraud can help track down the scammer.
