Businesses warned about phone scam

Have your say

BUSINESSES are being warned about a telephone scam that involves a bogus caller asking for sponsorship for a drug and alcohol awareness booklet.

Police say the caller poses as a member of staff representing a company called Drug and Alcohol Awareness before then asking for sponsorship for an advisory booklet.

The Drug and Alcohol Team, Alcohol Advisory Services and the Drug Advice Service & Helpline have all confirmed that this caller is not representing them.

A police spokesman said: ‘We are urging members of the business community on the Isle of Man to be vigilant following this telephone scam. Please stop and think carefully before sending any money or giving your personal details in these sorts of circumstances, and remember, if it looks too good to be true then it probably is.’
