News : Warning over Bogus Phone Calls Claiming to be from Derbyshire County Council
Derbyshire County, UK, Oct 4, 2016 -- A warning has been issued after residents reported getting bogus phone calls from people claiming to be from Derbyshire County Council.
The callers want to talk about accidents people may have had and Derbyshire County Council's trading standards team say the scammers have been quoting a legitimate council phone number to make the call seem genuine.
It appears that they are phoning from a London code but a spokesman for the authority said it was more likely the calls were being made from an overseas call centre.
The authority's cabinet member for health and communities, Councillor Dave Allen, has issued advice to residents.
He said: "We'd like to make it perfectly clear that we would never make unsolicited phone calls of this nature. Our advice is to put down the phone on these scammers and report the call.
"These fraudsters pretend to be from a place of authority so that people will be less likely to question them.
"Luckily, this time around the people who have contacted us have realised this is a scam phone call and have hung up in good time."
