Police are warning people to be aware of a possible new telephone scam after a man was targeted by a caller falsely claiming to be from the Ministry of Justice.
The man, from Barry, received a call advising him that he could be owed money from payment protection insurance (PPI), but first had to make an upfront payment in order to enable him to receive the money.
As the caller indicates they are from the Ministry of Justice it can appear very plausible and the scam is designed to gain the victims' trust. We are urging people not to be taken in by cold callers approaching them by telephone and informing them of money they may be entitled to.
South Wales Police is asking anyone affected to contact the force using the 101 number.

It's great for the Senior Tour and also for Wales that the Wales Senior Open is back on the schedule. Obviously I’d love to add the tournament to my list of wins, so I’ll be trying my best to get my hands on the trophy at Celtic Manor this year.
It’s always nice to play in front of your home fans, so hopefully we’ll get a big crowd to come out and support us all, just like we had at Porthcawl for the Senior Open last year.
