Fraud Alert

A potential fraud targeting farmers and crofters has been drawn to the attention of the Scottish Government today.

Victims receive a phone call from a person claiming to be from an agricultural department of the government, advising them that they are due thousands of pounds in scheme payments.

To receive their payments, victims are advised to call another phone number.

The Scottish Government advises that these calls are not from a government department and this number should not be called.
