A resident from Olney has posted on Facebook yesterday that he had received a phone call which said a payment is being made to a "Mr Carlos in South Africa" and to press 1 to cancel the payment or hang up if I want it to go through. Just ignore it and hung up but some people will panic and press 1 which is what they want you to do. PLEASE DON'T PRESS 1. JUST HANG UP!
Please can you help spread the word especially if you know any elderly residents that are vulnerable and may get caught by this scam.
