Due to the amount of messages I have received from members of the public who have had phone calls allegedly from the TPS or similar named organisation, I decided to contact the TPS to clarify the situation. They confirmed that you can register with them either by phone (0345 070 0707) or online (www.tpsonline.org.uk) and the service is FREE.
If you register online you will receive an e-mail from them confirming your registration but you will never be asked to click on a link or send money. You will also never receive an unsolicited phone call from TPS asking for money or bank card details. If you do receive a call it’s highly likely that it will be a scam. Please bear in mind that the caller may know your personal details and may also know your bank details. NEVER GIVE OUT OR CONFIRM PERSONAL OR FINANCIAL DETAILS OVER THE PHONE
