  • September 13, 2021 at 6:36 AM by an anonymous user from: Hull, England, United Kingdom

    It's called spoofing... the scammed disguises their number so that it appears to come from someone you know, or a genuine establishment, in this case, Oldham Court. If you get to speak to someone, waste as much of their time as you can, give false details then tell them to f#@$ off. What ever you do, don't give any info about yourself.

    I just had a call from this number. They claimed to be from Oldham County Court, telling me my NI number has been compromised, and to press 1 to speak to an officer. I did not say anything, and they hung up. Blocked and reported.

  • September 10, 2021 at 8:19 AM by an anonymous user from: Sheffield, England, United Kingdom

    Just had a call from this number I told them I knew it was a scam and they hung up but please be warned that when you put this number in google it comes up as Manchester family court but is 100% a scam

  • September 10, 2021 at 5:45 AM by an anonymous user from: City of London, London, England, United Kingdom

    Just had a call from this number. Answered the phone but did not speak and they just hang up, as most scammer calls do. Reported number and blocked it.

  • September 10, 2021 at 5:26 AM by an anonymous user from: Cambridge, England, United Kingdom

    Just got a call from this number - it threatens to block your NI number and then there is a recorded voicemail for talking to an 'Officer'. Block and report the number

  • September 10, 2021 at 3:06 AM by an anonymous user from: EC2, London, England, United Kingdom

    I saw the missed call and the caller ID said Old ham court Manchester. Called the number and it thanked me for calling the number and said it was the civil and family court. I decided to do a search because I don't even live near Manchester and wondering why would they call me. So glad that the search showed it was a scam. I have reported the number to my phone provider. I trust no one fall for these evil scammers.

  • September 10, 2021 at 2:21 AM by an anonymous user from: City of London, London, England, United Kingdom

    Had 3 phone calls from this number listened to the threat of court and or prison if I did it return thier call. Waited til then end and someone spoke to me with a American / Canadian accent asking my name? I said you rang me so you should know my name! How do I know who you are and they sighed and hung up. Very worrying though as I rang the number plus looked it up an to all intents and purposes it was Manchester civil courts service? Now I have seen it’s a scam my mind it at ease “sort of’

  • September 9, 2021 at 7:54 AM by an anonymous user from: West Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom

    I literally just had a phone call from this number 01612405000, they asked for my name (I did give it) that was all then she told me I had a warrant out for my arrest 🤣 I live miles & miles away from manchester so I doubt that, I laughed at her & she hung up!

    Do not answer these bunch of m****s.

  • September 9, 2021 at 6:00 AM by an anonymous user from: Hull, England, United Kingdom

    I have received a call from this number today too. I did callback and no answer from any of the dials given.

  • September 8, 2021 at 5:18 AM by an anonymous user from: E2, London, England, United Kingdom

    I got a call from this number, I identified it as a scam, I said HELLO and then said nothing as soon as he started to speak, finally, he got fed up and probably knew he had been sussed so he put the phone down. this always works.

  • September 7, 2021 at 9:37 AM by an anonymous user from: Linkoping, Ostergotland County, Sweden

    lol, the number appeared in bright red! with a '!' next to it, obviously another fraudster trying their luck!

    & unfortunately for them!, a foolish idiot uses this phone!lol

  • September 7, 2021 at 8:18 AM by an anonymous user from: Donnington, Newbury, England, United Kingdom

    Definitely a scam. Block the number and report to your telephone provider so that they can gather info to investigate.

  • September 6, 2021 at 1:40 PM by an anonymous user from: E2, London, England, United Kingdom

    Very cleaver scam

    Using oldham country court number and 6 convincing options to choose from.

    One give away is the American accent of the caller

  • September 3, 2021 at 3:31 AM by an anonymous user from: E2, London, England, United Kingdom

    Didn’t answer this call today as I recognise the 0161 area code from a previous phone call where the caller was very persistent. Call said it was from ‘Oldham County Court’, but googled as no connection to Oldham, and it comes up as a scam. Now blocked.

  • September 2, 2021 at 9:48 AM by an anonymous user from: Uddingston, Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom

  • August 30, 2021 at 8:36 AM by an anonymous user from: City of London, London, England, United Kingdom

    I received a call from this number on 27 Aug 2021, it being flagged as a potential scam. I was in the middle of another call and declined this call. Googled it and wasn't surprised to see it is a scam. Number blocked. I move on with my life.

  • August 27, 2021 at 2:58 AM by an anonymous user from: Mill Hill, London, England, United Kingdom

    do not answer calls from his number

  • August 25, 2021 at 11:22 AM by an anonymous user from: E2, London, England, United Kingdom

    Had a call today, obviously a scam from the recorded message but I was surprised who the real owner of the number was when I googled it. Clearly a scam

  • August 24, 2021 at 8:21 AM by an anonymous user from: Mill Hill, London, England, United Kingdom

    This number called me today, but I missed the call. Did a search, & discovered, as I thought, it's a scammer call. Blocked now.

  • August 24, 2021 at 4:42 AM by an anonymous user from: Reading, England, United Kingdom

    I have received a call from this number 01612405000 today 24/08/2021. My android phone showed "potential fraud" on the screen but I answered as I'm getting calls from this number a couple of times and ignored it and upon googling the number, found out that it belongs to courts in Manchester.

    There was an automated message (which wasn't very clear) about a National Insurance fraud and if I ignore it then there will be serious consequences. Asked me to press 1 to speak to a representative, which I did. Stayed on the phone for a couple of minutes and then a "representative of the court" started speaking in a very threatening manner. He asked me to confirm my personal details like date of birth, National Insurance in very poor English.

    He refused to give me his name and number and the kind of "fraud" associated with my national insurance. I told him that it all seems like a scam to me and he hung up straight away.

  • August 20, 2021 at 8:11 AM by an anonymous user from: Parkstone, Poole, England, United Kingdom

    SCAMMER, called then texted through a poor edited letter from the Inland Revenue threatening to seize all assets, ignore. calling from MumbaI probably.

  • August 20, 2021 at 5:39 AM by an anonymous user from: Greater London, England, United Kingdom

    I received a call but no one was on another side. I am just going to ignore it.

  • August 20, 2021 at 5:33 AM by an anonymous user from: City of London, London, England, United Kingdom

    I have just been called by this number too but have ignored it. Googled to see it was a court in Manchester, I have no relation to Manchester nor ever been. I'm sure this is a scam because if it was important they would have left a voicemail.

  • August 20, 2021 at 5:10 AM by an anonymous user from: E2, London, England, United Kingdom

    Have just received a call from this number but didn't answer it. Am going to block the caller.

  • August 19, 2021 at 8:21 AM by an anonymous user from: Greater Manchester, Manchester, England, United Kingdom

    Was just called by this number a few minutes ago. I usually don't answer calls from unknown numbers but as we have family in Manchester I answered just in case - it just said "Manchester, England" under the number! - but after a couple seconds of silence, it just cut off!

    I've now blocked it anyway so won't hear from them again!

  • August 19, 2021 at 7:33 AM by an anonymous user from: Rochdale, England, United Kingdom

    I have also received a call this morning, didn't answer it as I didn't recognise the number.

  • August 19, 2021 at 6:59 AM by an anonymous user from: Greater Manchester, England, United Kingdom

    I was called today by this number it came up as Oldham County Court but when I googled it it came up as Manchester County Court I just ignored it and have since blocked the number. This is worrying though as the same number does exist so not sure how they have got access to this.

  • August 19, 2021 at 6:17 AM by an anonymous user from: Lancashire, Oldham, England, United Kingdom

    I have just received a call to my mobile saying it was from Manchester Courts, I did press option 1 as I was called as a witness from them I thought the call was ligit, it seems it was not I am unsure what to do now

  • August 19, 2021 at 5:55 AM by an anonymous user from: East Riding of Yorkshire, Cottingham, England, United Kingdom

    I have been called by this number today (19/08/2021) at 11:55AM- sounding very realistic. Not sure how to report this.

    • August 20, 2021 at 8:57 AM by an anonymous user from: Greater London, England, United Kingdom

      You can call the Action Fraud Line on 0300 123 2040 to report it

  • August 19, 2021 at 4:11 AM by an anonymous user from: Reading, England, United Kingdom

    How do we know if it is a scam

    • August 19, 2021 at 4:49 AM by info

      The government or private institutions will never contact and threaten you in order to get your personal or financial information.

  • August 18, 2021 at 3:09 PM by info
