    I received the message today - March 25th 2020 so this scam is still going round.

    We were not British Gas customers during the time quoted (2018-2020)

    Just had an attempted scam. Reduction in Homecare bill as we had not made a claim. Female caller had name and address and detail of our Homecare account. Hung up when she advised that there would be a follow up call from the "Implementation Team". Advised police non emergency number. Call came from 020 347 69808.
