New Telephone SCAM

An Olney resident posted on Facebook yesterday that he had received a phone call which said "payment is being made to Mr Carlos in South Africa, press 1 to cancel the payment or hang up if I want it to go through".  

Just ignore it and hang up.

Some people may panic and press 1 which is the scammer’s objective.   This diverts the call to a high cost premium line.  Please can you help spread the word especially if you know any vulnerable residents who may get caught by this scam.
