Warning: Fraud alert

Notice of fraud

A Service provider in Suffolk has notified Suffolk County Council of a scam.  A family member of one of the provider’s customers was recently contacted and advised that their provider had been taken over by a larger company.  They were asked to submit their bank details and send them off to this new larger company. The original provider advised the family that this was untrue and advised them to contact their bank and speak to the fraud department.

If you have any calls from worried customers (we are only aware of one letter) then please can you advise them that this is a scam and ask them not to provide any personal information or complete any paperwork to any new company.
