Police have warned people living in north and west Belfast to be vigilant after people in these areas were targeted by bogus phone-calls, claiming to be from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

Victims were contacted by both male and female callers who claimed to represent HMRC. They said their records showed a sum of money was owed for unpaid taxes and it was an offence to refuse payment. They requested payment over the phone and asked for bank or credit card details demanding immediate payment.

If you have received a similar call, report it to police on the Action Fraud line on 0300 123 2040 to receive a crime reference number or use the online fraud reporting tool here.
