5 complaints - London
This number called me claiming to be the OFT saying that they were handling my bank charge rebate and that it had been approved. Alarmingly, they had all of my details - name, birthdate, bank, address, phone numbers and email. They had the same for my partner and knew it was a joint account. The only place all of this info was in the same place was in a letter written and posted to the bank, and the details held by the bank. I have concluded this as they had a mobile phone number I have not used in 4 years, but has not been updated on my bank account. I have contacted the bank and will now contact the police as I beleive the bank has sold this info.
Claims to be Office of Fair Trading refunding bank charges, gives address in London etc. You then pay fees by money transfer as a 'receiver fee'. Elderly friend has sent hundreds of pounds in the expectation of receiving a cheque for thousands. Money has gone to some guy in India via Western Union. Evil.
This is a money fraud scam,they give a london address which actually is for the Trading Standards be aware that this is a scam...report it!!
They pretend to be from the office of fair trading but they are not, they'll tell you they have bank charges etc they have claimed for you, they then ask you to take £199 to the post office to give to them so that they can send a goverment officer to your door with a cheque from the claim that they pretend to have made for you, it's a scam..phone the police immediately.
