Police have issued a warning about a scam in Northern Ireland

“A male rings and claims to be from HMRC (Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs) and they are owed thousands in unpaid tax. He then goes onto demand immediate payment over the phone by way of iTunes vouchers, threatening arrest and cancellation of bank cards if his demands are not met,” a spokesman for the PSNI explained.

“Never give any personal details out over and phone and definitely not money in any format.”
