Posted: 26th March 2020

DWP takes security very seriously but you need to be alert. Organised fraudsters will pretend to be Government Departments often to try and trick you into calling a number, send an email or click on a link that may take you to a site that looks very similar to a DWP site but is fraudulent site. Never pass your personal information if you have any queries over the nature of the contact. You should report the email to Action Fraud using the following link http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/report_fraud, or you can call Action Fraud on 0300 123 2050 (Please note this number will be charged at your normal network rate). They open Monday to Friday, 09:00 – 18:00
