We believe that someone may be ‘spoofing’ our phone number – making their number appear as ours on Caller ID. At this time, we don’t know why someone is using our number. We know it’s a scammer, but don’t know if they’re impersonating us or using our number for another purpose.
If you’ve received a call from 01455 557116 and have not been in contact with Age Concern Lutterworth & District before, you have probably been targeted by this scammer. Age Concern Lutterworth will never make unsolicited calls. The only members of the public we contact are those who have given us their phone numbers themselves.
If you’ve received an unsolicited call from 01455 557116 and spoken to the scammer, we would appreciate if you could get in contact with us and let us know what was said on the call. If you’ve given your bank details or other personal information to this scammer, you can contact Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 to file a report.
UPDATE: We have been contacted by someone who said this number was used by someone claiming to be working for Track and Trace. If you receive a call like this from 01455 557116, it is a scam and you should hang up, block them if possible and report them to Action Fraud.
