Telecare Scam – Argyll and Bute

If anyone is concerned about a telephone call relating to Telecare, they should dial 01546 605517 and ask to speak to their local Argyll and Bute TEC Technician.

Argyll and Bute Health and Social Care Partnership HSCP is aware of a scam being circulated in some areas which may be targeting #telecare service users transitioning to digital telecare. This scam is false phone calls to telecare services users asking them to pay for a new alarm as their current system is obsolete.

Given the vulnerability of telecare service users, there is a high risk that they may provide bank details to the scammer.
