    Re: Telephone Scam

    If anyone calls claiming to be from the Government, they wouldn't leave messages like that on an answerphone...

    If in doubt, go to the relevant .gov.uk website and send a message

    I assumed they had found out about the extra bottle of brandy you sneaked thru customs on your way home from Benalmadena in 1998...

    HMRC will ALWAYS write to you on a matter you have to deal with. Always.
    to infinity and beyond...

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And with just the October medal to go - I've got to 8.3

    on a slightly different scam but a scam anyway ,i was phoned and asked about the accident that i had ,i told them it wasnt an accident and that i killed them on purpose ,the phone line went dead after a few seconds .i wonder why.
    common sense is so rare it should be classed as a super power.

    Double glazing phone calls. I keep them on the line for as long as possible, they soon go when I tell them I live in a tent.
