Phone scam data » National Insurance Number


A caller on the phone claims to be from the National Crime Agency and informs you that your National Insurance Number is being used illegally.

Usually, it will be an automated voice message that calls asking you to press a number to speak to one of their agents. If you do so, you will be put through to a scammer claiming that your National Insurance Number has been compromised.

The scammer will claim your current N.I will be suspended, so you need a new one. In reality, the fraudster is just after your personal details that they will use to go on and commit fraud in your name.

Keep vigilant and don’t pass your personal details over to calls you receive out of the blue. If you do receive this type of call, hang up, and call the HMRC directly. They will be able to tell you if the call originated from them or if there is an issue with your National Insurance Number.
