Nottinghamshire Copunty Council have been advised of an incident on the 16th December 2018 where a care home was contacted by someone purporting to be Bailiffs collecting an outstanding debt on behalf of the Council. The home owner and his family were threatened by the person on the telephone and the Police were called and are dealing with the matter.
We are advised that this type of ‘scam’ is being carried out across the Country and unfortunately it seems that it is now happening in Nottinghamshire.
Please be advised that should the Council be in contact with any service provider the caller will always give their name and a contact telephone number so that you can verify their call. If you have any similar instances please do not hesitate to contact us on 0300 500 80 80
