We have been made aware of a scam phone call to residents where a male pretends to be from the council, or Kent County Council.

The caller asks the person about a recent accident they have had and how they might want to make a claim.

 These calls seem to be coming from a variety of numbers, but two popular ones appear to be 02098754621 and 0061432509871.

 We never ring people in this way, so please hang up should you get a call of this nature. Be vigilant, and keep your personal details and your money safe.

 If you receive one of these scam telephone calls please report it to Kent Trading Standards via the Citizens Advice consumer service on 03454 04 05 06.
