Phantom Debt Collectors and Bailiffs Fraud Alert
The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) and Action Fraud have recently noticed that fraudsters have been impersonating bailiffs requesting payments for “phantom” debt. The fraud involves being cold-called by someone purporting to be a bailiff working on behalf of a court, attempting to recover funds for a non-existent debt.
Please note that a link to the NFIB’s feedback survey can be found at the end of every alert, or you can access it here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FeedbackSDU. The survey is only 3 questions long and should take no more than 2 minutes to complete. We would appreciate it if you would take a moment to let us know if an alert was particularly useful, or if you have any suggestions for improvement. If you have been forwarded this email and wish to be added to the distribution list for fraud alerts, please contact NFIBOutputs@cityoflondon.pnn.police.uk.
