Scam telephone calls

Scam Alert – Telephone cold caller claiming to be ‘Derek Jones from Jacobs’ – 17 November 2014

Norfolk Trading Standards are highlighting a warning from Action Fraud about a telephone cold caller claiming to be a ‘Derek Jones’ working for the debt recovery company ‘Jacobs’.

During the call the man claims that the recipient of the call owes a debt that will be heard in court in two days. The caller then threatens that if payment is not made immediately he will ‘send the bailiffs round’.

The claims made in the call are not genuine. There is a genuine debt recovery company called ‘Jacobs’ but they have confirmed that the calls are not connected with them in any way. The name ‘Derek Jones’ has also been used in previous cold calling scams.

If you receive this call hang up and then report it to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040
