This warning message is being sent to all residents on the Neighbourhood Alert system in Sussex

 

We have been advised that more than 20 Patcham residents have within the last few days received telephone calls from callers purporting to be from HMRC (Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs) telling them that they owe tax in the region of £3,000.  Their call is aggressive, threatening, urgent and sounds authentic.  They suggest meeting at a Brighton location where the tax owed is handed over. Don't be fooled. These calls are from scammers.

 

If you receive one of these calls, please immediately telephone 101 or report it to the police through their website https://www.sussex.police.uk/contact-us/report-online/
