Avon and Somerset Police warn of PPI claim scammers

Payment Protection Insurance (PPI) claim scammers are striking in the south-west of England.

Avon and Somerset Police have issued a warning about these criminals, who contact members of the public offering to help them with a PPI refund they are entitled to.

They ask victims to pay them fees through Western Union money transfers, Ukash vouchers or other untraceable routes but then do not provide any services.

Detective Constable Greg Brunt, from the police force's financial investigation unit, warned that genuine companies will never ask for money to be paid before the claimant has received their PPI compensation payout.

Furthermore, wire transfers or vouchers are not used as payment options by these firms, he added.

"If you are a PPI customer and you receive a telephone call asking you to make a payment or buy vouchers, hang up," he advised, adding that people should then "call the company back via the official phone number".

Ukash tries to keep on top of scams that use its service and publishes details of them on its website.
