Scam Calls pretending to be about Government Insulation Offer 2020

1 reply 145 views
Hi all. This is a warning that there seems to be a scam call going on at the moment about The Government Insulation Scheme. No doubt hoping to scam the elderly. Didn't get far with me (I have an abrupt voice with obvious scammers). So scared them off. However, they called my landline and said they were called Matthew and were phoning about the Government Insulation Scheme. When using 1471, the number came up as 01215995470. When putting this in to the search engine, seems many others have had this scam call. Hope nobody is taken in by them. I don't know how this scam works as luckily didn't get that far with ne. I've reported it to Action Fraud. Stay safe all.

    I have reported the scam to the reseller of the number and they could take action unless, of course, the number was spoofed.
    Any opinions are my own unless otherwise stated.
