Warning over phone frauds
FRAUDSTERS have tried to trick elderly people in the Moorlands into giving away their cash in a scam.
Police have received reports from two elderly residents in Cheadle and a man in Stockton Brook who received phone calls from criminals pretending to offer refunds for mis-sold Payment Protection Insurance (PPI) on previous loans.
The potential victim is asked to purchase Ukash vouchers from a local shop and reveal the code from the voucher, in order to receive their PPI refund.
A Staffordshire Police spokesman said: "Ukash vouchers are simply cash vouchers and if you give the code to anyone, it will allow them to spend it from anywhere in the world. No part of the code should ever be given to anyone."
