Vitamin Scam Calls
Practices in North Durham and Durham Dales, Easington and Sedgefield Clinical Commissioning Groups have reported incidents of patients receiving unsolicited calls requesting their bank details in order to purchase vitamins.
The caller claims that they work for the NHS before stating that the patient requires vitamins that are to be paid for over the phone, resulting in charges of hundreds of pounds.
Durham Constabulary advise that anyone who has been contacted in this way should contact their bank as soon as possible to attempt to block the payment, and should report it to Action Fraud (the UK's national fraud and cyber-crime reporting centre) on 0300 123 2040.
To reduce the number of cold calls, register with the telephone preference service on 0345 070 0707 or www.tpsonline.org.uk
