One of our clients has received a convincing letter, on headed paper, from Aviva, with whom she has a policy, which made it more believable. She was asked to call the number shown to identify herself as they had information about her products with them. They also said that they wanted to check any other existing addresses she may have. Luckily, she went online and checked out the 0800 number first which she then found out was linked to a scam. Always check out phone numbers independently, and do not pass on any personal or bank details on the spot. Please report any suspicious contact which appears to be from Aviva to their Fraud Hub. Click here for the link which also has plenty of tips to help protect yourself from fraud.
