By Citizens Advice – Kent residents are being targeted by scammers pretending to be Citizens Advice

If you get a call from someone saying they are from Citizens Advice, asking for details and payments to be made, this is a scam!

Citizens Advice would never cold call you and would only phone you if you had already been in contact with them or had left a message asking them to do so. They won’t call you outside office hours, and will never ask you to set up any payments over the phone.

Report scams to Action Fraud 0300 123 2040
