A local resident recently received a ‘phone call from someone with a foreign accent claiming to be from the Telephone Preference Service (TPS). They asked the resident to confirm their name and then said they could block all nuisance calls but that the resident’s Visa card had expired.
The TPS is a free service and clearly the call was leading up to obtaining the resident’s card details. The resident however curtailed the call and reported it to the relevant authorities.
This would appear to be another ‘take’ on telephone scams. Don’t be fooled
