Lincolnshire police are warning of a recent increase in scam phone calls. In several cases the caller claims to be either from HMRC or the police, threatening arrest, a lawsuit or advising the recipient that they are under investigation. The objective of the caller is to get the victim to pay money. In one incident, the victim was instructed to go to the local post office to withdraw funds. Unusually for scammers, they are also sometimes leaving voicemail messages (which may sound automated) threatening action of some sort if their instructions aren’t followed. PLEASE CIRCULATE DETAILS OF THIS SCAM AS WIDELY AS POSSIBLE, PARTICULARLY TO OLDER, VULNERABLE MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY
