Police warn of death certificate scam

Tue, 17 Jan 2017

The Island's police are warning of a scam where criminals attempt to steal the identity of someone who has recently died.

The Isle of Man Constabulary says the Log Death Certificate Scam involves contacting the next of kin of a recently deceased person, requesting a copy of the death certificate with seemingly legitimate reasons.

Officers warn not to give personal details to such a caller, as a genuine caller will understand you asking to call them back, allowing you to verify their identity.

The police also advise checking any number given by a caller, ensuring it is one listed on an official website.
