Scam alert on housing condition claim
We are aware of a scam currently doing the rounds where people are getting a telephone call about the “claim you have made about the poor condition of your property”.
The telephone number shows as 0161 520 2592 and the caller pretends to be a Housing Officer.
In reports we have had, if you tell them you own your own property, or question them in depth, they then put the phone down.
The scam involves asking for bank account details under the guise that they will be paying the claim.
