“Am I speaking to Mrs PinQ?”
“Hello Mrs PinQ. I am Dave [MYAR5E] from Credit _______”
I didn’t catch the name of the ‘company’.
“It is my understanding that you have personal debt that you pay off monthly.”
“I must stop you there. This number is TPS registered.”
“But your number was given to us by Citizens Advice and the Financial Conduct Authority with regard to your debt.”
“I don’t think so. Even if Citizens Advice did have my details due to a problem with debt, they would not contravene the DPA ’98.”
“Well, what I don’t understand is if you can’t amanage your debt, why you have TPS.”
He then hung up.
I have reported the call to the TPS, Action Fraud, Citizens Advice and the FCA. Mainly because of the people that would be suckered by these scammers – especially when they are bandying about organisations such as Citizens Advice and the FAC.
