Residents are being urged to be on their guard after Tamworth Borough Council was made aware of a potential telephone scam operating in the area.
We have received a number of reports of residents in Tamworth being called by someone claiming to be from Tamworth Borough Council and asking if they have been involved in an accident.
The caller – a man with an Asian accent – claims he has received information from the NHS about an accident and says he can help claim compensation.
These calls are bogus and do not come from the Tamworth Borough Council or anyone representing the authority. If you receive such a call, please hang up and do not provide any of your details.
Bogus callers should be reported to the police on the non-emergency 101 number.
