We have received reports that East Ayrshire residents are receiving phone calls from people claiming that they work for SKY and that they are calling about a ‘refund’ you are supposedly due. The callers go on to say that this ‘refund’ must be claimed within 48 hours and that to do so they must have your bank account details.
Don’t get caught. This is a scam.
SKY have confirmed that they would not process refunds in this way.
If you have received one of these calls and have been persuaded to pass over your bank details – contact your bank straight away and arrange to have any payments stopped.
