Scam Cold Calls pretending to be HMRC

2 November 2018

Police are warning residents to be wary of cold callers following incidents in the county. Officers have received around 100 calls this week from residents concerned about cold calls from scammers claiming to be from HMRC.

In most cases, scammers have claimed to be from HMRC stating that the person is involved owes payment for a fine. Often this includes leaving a message on answer phones asking the public to call to make payments/ threatening arrest for non-payment and requesting i-tunes vouchers or bitcoins used to pay the debt - these then ask the recipients to call them to make payment or read the codes off the back of vouchers.

Resident should put the phone down on these callers and no money/ vouchers should ever be handed over as these are scam calls.

An HMRC spokesperson said: "HMRC takes security extremely seriously. We are aware that some people have received telephone calls from individuals claiming to be from HMRC. We have a well-known brand, which criminals abuse to add credibility to their scams. These scams often involve people receiving a call out of the blue and being told that HMRC is investigating them. If you can’t verify the identity of the caller, we recommend that you do not speak to them."

Anyone concerned about incidents should follow this advice:

Sizewell C Project

11 October 2018

Sizewell C Project Update
Thank you for taking the time to read this latest email to Parish Councils in East Suffolk about Sizewell C, the project to build a new nuclear power station north of Sizewell B on the Suffolk coast.
You may have seen in the media over the last few weeks that we intend to launch our next stage of public consultation on the Sizewell C proposals early next year. The consultation will run for twelve weeks and will include lots of information about the power station itself and also the associated developments that will be needed to help build the station over a ten-year period, such as park and ride sites, an accommodation campus for workers, and road and rail improvements.

EDF Energy’s Managing Director of Nuclear Development Humphrey Cadoux-Hudson with local representatives
Sizewell C will present a lot of opportunities to Suffolk and the East of England. The project will provide jobs and contracts for East Anglian firms and we will be investing in education and skills to help create the workforce we need to deliver this major project.

The construction of Sizewell C will have impacts, and we need to consult local communities on the best way of mitigating the effects of construction and operation in due course. To that end, we have commissioned a company called Ardent to identify parties who may be affected by our proposals. Ardent will write to land and property owners living near sites where the construction impacts may be experienced. It is important that we know who owns and lives in property nearby so we can make sure they are consulted and we understand their views on our proposals. We will of course be engaging directly with parish councils and all other residents as well.

Should you hear from anyone in your parish who has received a ‘Request for Information' (RFI) letter from Ardent on behalf of EDF Energy, please note this does not necessarily mean we are proposing any development on their land or home. At this stage we simply need the correct details so we can engage directly with residents who may be affected by construction activity – however minimal the impact may be.

Please do not hesitate to contact us on Freephone 0800 197 6102 if you have any questions.
