Surrey Police are warning that fraudsters claiming to be from HMRC are calling residents purporting to offer financial support because of Coronavirus.
The police advice if you receive a call such as this is unequivocal:
"If you receive a text, email or call claiming to be from HMRC that asks you to click on a link or give info such as your name, credit card or bank details, it's a scam."
