PPI claims scammers strike in Isle of Wight

People in the Isle of Wight have been warned about a scam dealing with payment protection insurance (PPI) claims.

Trading Standards officers at the local authority have received a number of calls from members of the public who report that a PPI claims company has contacted them informing them that they are entitled to a bank refund of around £2,000.

However, they are asked to pay a fee of £200 through Ukash vouchers so they can receive the money.

Anyone who receives a call of this type should hang up the phone and contact Trading Standards, the Isle of Wight Council stated.

Regulatory services manager for the local authority Amanda Gregory revealed an elderly man managed to recognise this call as the PPI claims scam that it was, as specialists had visited his accommodation a week earlier and provided residents with advice on how to identify frauds.

Anything that sounds "too good to be true" is probably a scam, Ukash warned.
