COVID-19 Related Telephone Scams

Alert message sent 01/05/2020 17:55:00

Information sent on behalf of Local Authority

We understand some residents have received calls from people claiming to be from the council.  The caller is asking residents to provide their bank details so they can provide social care and/or volunteer related payments.
Please note we would NOT ask for your bank details and these calls are not from the council. You should not provide your bank details over the phone.
If you receive one of these calls, please report it to the Citizens Advice Consumer Service on 0808 223 1133 or it can be reported online
Nottinghamshire County Council are continuing to make ‘safe and well check’ phone-calls to selected residents during this period. From Monday these will show as from 0300 500 8080, and these are purely to see if any additional support is required through this period.
