Pension Bonus Scam

Post  Admin on Fri Jul 18, 2014 8:52 am

Poole Trading Standards are warning residents to be aware of a pension bonus telephone scam. The scamers are telephoning people and stating they are from the Pension Helpline. The caller then claims that you are due a £1,000 bonus within the next 12 weeks. Callers may even be able to provide you with some of your personal information such as name or address.

Protect yourself and never provide any personal information to a cold caller. Always telephone the company directly from a number on your paperwork or get the number from a telephone directory to confirm if the call was genuine.

You can register both your landline and mobile numbers with the following FREE services and are advised to do so on a YEARLY BASIS
The Telephone Preference Service – 0845 070 0707
Silent Call Guard – 0844 372 2325

If you believe you have been the victim of any such scam then you should also report the matter to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or report it on their website: www.actionfraud.police.uk/report_fraud [url=http://www.actionfra ud.police.uk/report_fraud][/url]
