PPI claim scammers strike in Cheshire

Cheshire Police have warned of door-to-door scammers focusing on payment protection insurance (PPI) claims.

The crime involves individuals travelling from house to house asking people if they are owed money through a PPI refund and requesting personal information from members of the public, claiming this is needed to investigate who should be given cash.

A spokesperson for the police force said the offenders contact the residents later, informing that they are owed a "large sum of money".

However, to unlock the cash, people are asked to send Ukash vouchers to the criminals.

"Once this money has been taken by the scam team no money is received by the victim," the police representative remarked.

Officers advise members of the public to refuse to make any upfront payments and to deal with the "proper and reputable companies" that can help with PPI claims.

Similar frauds and scams have been reported all over the UK, with Nottingham Trading Standards reminding people to avoid giving personal information to cold-callers.
