Crime Prevention
National Insurance number ‘compromised’ cold call 
An official sounding voice usually claiming to be from the National Crime Agency or National Office for Serious Crimes has been cold calling unsuspecting members of the public, asking them to call back urgently. It may state that your National Insurance number has been compromised, but it’s an attempt to get you to hand over your personal details.
You may receive it in the form of a pre-recorded message or phone call that sounds threatening, so please do ignore it. 
Pension Scam
Have you been offered a FREE pension review? Professional advice on pensions is not free. If you’ve received an unsolicited offer about your pension, this could be a scam.
