Lincolnshire Police are advising that the above named ‘scam’ is operating in the region. The ‘scam’ involves a fraudster phoning you to tell you that you are owed money but in order to receive the money you will have to pay an admin charge using Pay safe vouchers. If you were to follow these instructions and provide the caller with the code numbers of the vouchers it would enable them to cash the vouchers without even being in possession of them. Sometimes fraudsters will also request your address and suggest that they come and collect the vouchers in person. PLEASE NEVER AGREE TO PROVIDE MONEY, BY ANY MEANS, TO AN UNKNOWN CALLER.
