A number of our customers are being contacted by scam callers who are asking for their personal details.
Members of the public have also reported being approached in the street by people, smartly dressed and carrying ID badges, claiming to be from the Jobcentre.
Their information is then being used to make universal credit claims by the scam callers.
This is fraudulent and we advise all of our customers to please be careful at this time.
If you have any concerns at all, please contact the Money Matters Team on 0300 123 2004.
