Home Knowsley Council Warning over telephone scam

Warning over telephone scam

by Comms Team

Please be wary of a suspected telephone scam reported by a resident in Knowsley.

The resident received a call from somebody claiming to be Clifford Blossom from the Financial Ombudsman.

The caller requested that the resident go to their local shop and buy a £125 Paysafe card.

The caller claimed that, after this, a solicitor called Jennifer Smith would visit the resident’s property to collect the card and pay the resident £2,000.

Knowsley Council’s Trading Standards team is advising residents not to agree to any call or visit from Clifford Blossom or Jennifer Smith or to buy a Paysafe card in these circumstances.

If you receive a call like this, please report it to Consumer Advice on 03454 04 05 06.
