Calls have been made to households in Bearsden and Milngavie from a company claiming to be called UK Banking offering a refund for wrongly paid Payment Protection Insurance whereby the caller requests the person’s mobile number to send them a code to claim payment,

It is suspected that this may lead to premium rate numbers being called.

Constable Siobhan McCandlish of Milngavie Police said: “Genuine companies will not ask you to provide these details over the phone.”
