Warning over 'council' cold calls in Buckinghamshire

A bogus council worker has asked "vulnerable" adults in Buckinghamshire to give personal financial details over the phone, a council has warned.

Trading Standards is investigating reports of calls from someone with very poor English who claims to be from Buckinghamshire County Council.

The calls may originate from a call centre abroad, the council said.

"Residents should never disclose any personal information to cold callers," a spokesman added.
