Scam phone calls

The Telecoms Department are warning staff that the College is currently receiving a number of scam phone calls. These are from individuals claiming to be from the directory “Who’s Who” and have an originating ID of 001-866-978-6670. Staff are advised not to give out credit card details. Because the calls are originating outside of the UK they cannot be blocked by the Telephone Preference Service announced in Staff Briefing #77. Telecoms are working with their suppliers to block the calls by other means.
