Scammer claiming to be Age UK

We have received reports of a resident in Ashford being targeted by a Scammer claiming to be Age UK.

You get a telephone call from someone saying they are Age UK – They ask you questions including the name of your Doctors Surgery and any medication you take.

This is a scam – Age UK would not call and ask for personal information.

End the telephone call and make sure the line has cleared.

If you are unsure if a call is from AGE UK, contact your local Age UK
