Police are advising the public to once again be on their guard regarding scam phone calls, with reports being received from across the county.

The scam consists of a company contacting people purporting to be working for PPI compensation.

They allege that a solicitor is en route with a cheque to the value of several thousand pounds. In order to obtain the money, people are instructed to go to a local shop to purchase a UKASH voucher.

They then have to ring back with the serial number on the voucher and money is then transferred. UKASH is a genuine internet money transfer scheme. Police advise to only give the serial number to people you trust
