Couple issue warning about fraudulent PPI claim callers

A couple have issued a warning in the Northern Echo after receiving a number of scam phone calls from a man offering payment protection insurance (PPI) refunds.

Jacqueline Green and Gordon Cumming revealed in the publication that the caller had told them they were eligible to make a PPI claim, as they had been missold a policy.

Mr Cumming noted the scammer claimed the household was eligible to receive a PPI refund of £5,000.

However, the criminal argued this required a £200 administration fee, which was to be paid through a Ukash voucher.

When this money had been received, the caller said an accomplice would visit the couple with a cheque containing their PPI claim.

"This man knew the name, address, date of birth of my partner and who she banked with," Mr Cumming noted.

A notably similar scam was recently reported in the Sunderland Echo, with a spokesman for Durham Constabulary describing the crime as an example of "advance fee fraud".
