Warning goes out over scam HMRC calls

Neighbourhood Watch members in the area have received the following "scam" warning:

"A number of residents have received automated telephone calls from a person purporting to be from HMRC (HM Revenue and Customs).

"The calls claim that the matter is ‘serious’ and that the recipient needs to call back straight away. The phone calls threaten ‘action will be taken’ if the number is not called.

"Enquiries reveal that this is a scam.  If you receive a telephone call of this nature, do not telephone the number provided, and do not pass on any information. If you have provided information, or are concerned, having received a call of this type please contact North Wales Police by dialling 101.

"If you wish to contact HMRC do so after obtaining contact details for them from a trusted source, not from the telephone cold caller/automated message."
