Bogus Telephone Scam

A Coldstream resident received a call today from a man with a foreign accent stating that the resident was able to claim a 1000 grant from the government because they had paid their bills and taxes on time.

The male called from phone number 002389001076 and instructed the resident to phone 0232879079 and quote ID number NH917.

The resident did the right thing and terminated the call immediately

Please be very wary of unsolicited phone calls of this nature as they invariably scams.
