Unfortunately there are some people who see the current pandemic as an opportunity to try and fleece others. We’ve had the following warning from the Peterborough Diocese about attempts to get personal data.
‘Calls from somebody claiming to be from Public Health England, asking residents if they had received their letter from the government and then asking if they have support from family and friends, etc. and trying to obtain personal details’
Needless to say, we all need to be extremely careful and not give out personal data over the phone unless we are 100% confident about the identity of the person on the other end of the line! If you get such a call as above, please decline to give any information.
