Scammers impersonating CAB debt advisers

We have received several reports recently from various people, clients, members of the public and even staff, who have been cold-called by someone purporting to be from CAB, offering them help with their debts. Worryingly they are also asking for bank details so that they can set up payments.

This is a scam. No one from Citizens Advice will ever cold call a client offering advice, nor will we ever ask for bank details.

If you receive a call like this, turn the offer down and report it to Trading Standards.
