Cost of Living Crisis – Urgent DWP Scam Alert

There is a potential scam to be aware of regarding the Cost of Living Crisis payments (the first payment of £326 will automatically be dropping into eligible customers bank accounts between 14/7/22 and 31/7/22). 

Scammers are contacting customers by text & asking for their bank account details to confirm which account to pay it into. This text looks like it is from DWP – this is a scam and people should never text their bank account details anywhere and DWP would never ask for them by text.
