IMPORTANT MESSAGE - PLEASE BE AWARE OF UC SCAM CALLS!
Below is a message from Citzens Advice regarding a Universal Credit scam/phishing calls....DO NOT GIVE ANYONE YOUR BANK CARD DETAILS - THEY ARE NOT REQUIRED FOR A UC CLAIM!!
Please be aware. I've just received the following from our HTC supervisor.
Callers to our HTC line are saying that during the process for making a UC claim, they have been asked for the long number on their bank card and the 3 digit number on the back of their card. It looks like one or more fake sites have started to spring up. These details are never asked for during a UC claim made through gov.uk, the client is asked for the name of their bank, the name on the bank card, sort code and account number.
