Police are warning members of the public to be wary of bogus telephone calls in relation to PPI claims.Members of the public are reminded never to give out personal details over the phone to unsolicited callers. If you are unsure of a caller or feel that something is not right then ask for details to ascertain their identity. Ask where they are phoning from, where they have got your details from and where they have obtained your telephone number. Also, ask them if there is a number you can phone them back on or if there is another representative from their company that you can contact.If you are still unsure about them then contact the company or business to check if the call is genuine. Legitimate companies won’t have a problem with you calling them back.If you remain unsure of who the caller is then telephone QuickCheck on 0800 013 22 90. This call is free and will be answered by a trained operator. They will take the details of the company, which the caller claims to represent, and then contact that organisation to determine if the caller is genuine. If there is anything suspicious the operator will contact police directly.

Anyone with concerns or who believes they may have been victim of this type of scam or has any concerns should contact Police on 0845 600 8000.
