Another telephone scam

PC Sally Allanson, of Tewkesbury Police, writes Tewkesbury)

We have received a report of a telephone scam from people pretending to be from HMRC. They will state you owe tax and will instruct you to purchase Google Play vouchers. They will advise you what to say to the shop when you are purchasing the vouchers and then ask you to call them back with the voucher codes. This is a scam and if in doubt always call HMRC to check the call before taking any steps.
