2. Inland Revenue scam:
An email, allegedly from the Inland Revenue, is being sent out that states the recipient is due for a refund for overpaid tax. This is a scam to obtain your bank details. The Inland Revenue never sends information by telephone or email - all communication is by post. If you receive such an email, delete it immediately, do not click on the link provided.
3. Credit Card courier fraud active in the Ruislip area:
Please beware - Ruislip residents are being targeted by fraudsters operating a new variation of the 'Courier' fraud. The fraudsters persuade the victim to disclose Credit Card PIN numbers supposedly to their bank and then send round a member of the gang masquerading as a courier to collect the cards for cancelling or replacement.
