Kent Trading Standards Warning: Debt Collector scam email

October 29, 2014 9:13 AM

A Kent based charity has received an email from a debt collector acting on behalf of another business. The company claims to be making a final request for payment before they begin legal proceedings. The email includes a link to make payment arrangements.

The charity does not know either company.

Kent Trading Standards believe this email is a scam. Scammers want bank or credit card details for fraudulent purposes.

They have used a debt collector and threat of legal action to convince the recipient to reply to the email.
