OFT warns of two more scams

Tue, 09 May 2017

The Island's Office of Fair Trading is warning of two telephone scams targetting Manx residents.

One scam sees the caller pose as a representative of Barclaycard offering a PPI refund, using scare tactics in a bid to obtain the victim's banking details.

The OFT is also aware of fraudsters claiming to be from Manx Telecom, claiming a person's account has been hacked.

The caller goes on to offer compensation in a bid to get banking details.

The OFT is reiterating previous advice to not engage with such callers and hang up if you receive such a call.
