A resident of a neighbouring town received a call yesterday claiming to be from the NHS in relation to her being on the vulnerable list.  The caller said that they needed details of her bank account just in case she needed anyone to go shopping for her.

This is a scam call. You will never be asked for your bank details by any health provider who contacts you to advise that you are either in the group that needs to be shielded or the high risk group.

If you need support with shopping or medication delivery, and don’t have friends or family that can help, phone the Council’s Hotline number 0151 907 8363.

  • If you or somebody you know has been caught out by a scam or fraud please contact one of our specialist officers, Linda or Sue on 0151 511 8785 or 0151 511 8775, who are already working with people in Halton who have lost thousands of pounds to scams.
