HMRC phone scam – Please pass this on to as many as possible as our older residents are worrying when they get these calls.

We have received reports of scam phone calls from people claiming to work for HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).
The caller attempts to trick residents by claiming they owe large amounts of money to HMRC. They insist if the money is not paid, the police will be involved.
Please be aware that these calls are NOT being made by HMRC.
Do not disclose any personal information such as bank details or date of birth, no matter who the person claims to be.
