Kent County Council (KCC) have received a number of reports of scam phone calls from people claiming to be from KCC. The caller asks if you have contacted the NHS about a recent accident you, or a member of your family has had.
The telephone number used to make these calls is 03000 41 40 00, which was a telephone number for KCC. Please be aware that the calls are not being made by Kent County Council, this number is being replicated by caller ID spoofing equipment as part of a scam or hoax and is no longer in use.
KCC are concerned that residents may be asked for payment or information such as bank details.
If you receive one of these scam telephone calls please report it to Kent Trading Standards or telephone the Citizens Advice consumer service on 03454 04 05 06.
Kent County Council 22nd September 2015
