Beware of scams

SKU: 2.29
  • Advice

    These scams mainly involve someone impersonating a DWP employee to help you obtain the highest level of benefit. They advertise on the internet and via social media, often blatantly copying government logos to appear convincing. Whilst having the idea of someone filling in the forms sounds excellent; they are simply exploiting your financial vulnerabilities to access your personal information and bank details.

    Scammers will ask for your bank details (so they can arrange for the money to be paid into it), in essence it is all designed to be as plausable as possible. Armed with this information they can seek to take out credit in your name, some even manage to claim an advance payment on your behalf then pocket the money, leaving you with an instant U.C debt to repay.


    Our advice is simple – don’t trust any source online and don’t be so naive – do you REALLY think the DWP would employ staff to help you get the most money from them?


    Non-Personal scams

    Some scammers have exploited the five-week delay in initial payments and advance payments and have created claims for people who have died or children that do not exist. 


    If you think you might have been a victim of a U.C scam

    We recommend you report any suspected actions to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040, they have a reporting system that guides you through the various aspects, their advisors are online 24-7 to give help and advice as required. As well as reporting to Action Fraud we strongly suggest that you report the matter as soon as possible to your local Jobcentre Plus and the Police.
