Scam Warning

August 1, 2019

 

Action Fraud has received 63 reports about a scam in which fraudsters target people with offers of “low cost” loans or “free” government grants.

 

What the victims aren’t told is that the money they’ll receive is actually an advance payment for Universal Credit.

 

The criminals use the personal information they’ve obtain under false pretences to make an application in the victim’s name.

 

After the fraudsters have taken their “fee” from the advance payment, the victim is then left to pay back the total amount once their repayments begin.
