I have received similar messages in the past and fell for them. By God’s grace, I didn’t lose any money or my identity. Thank you IPS community for opening my eyes against these scams.


Well done! It does stress and upset many people, especially the old and disabled who are afraid to answer calls. Keep up the good work. I realise that it can be like banging your head against a concrete wall sometimes. An organized petition will at least show these people that we won’t put up with it anymore.


Thank you Charlie – I for one am extremely grateful for the service you offer.
