Residents Targeted By Citizens Advice Call Scam 


Kent residents 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.
