Our member of staff was called today from 02032 869 261 (actually displays as 00-02032869261 on their mobile) again it was an Indian call centre, this time the caller gave the name ‘Andrew Smith’.
They were asking for an activation code in order to pay out the £8,000 loan, when he was asked how we go about getting this activation code he used our staff members’ postcode to find a local mini-market. We were told to go here and load £266 onto a 3V Visa prepaid card (visit www.3vprepaid.com for more information) which we would receive a receipt for, with a reference number, as well as an account number for the card and this is what they call an activation code.
Obviously you are going to give them the details of the card and the reference on the receipt and somehow they will take that money and never send you the £8,000 loan.
As always, if you have received a call or have any more information about this number or the scam in general then please comment below.
