A Spalding woman is warning other people not to get caught out by a new scam.

The woman, who does not want to be named, was contacted by a man claiming to be representing the UK Government who told her she was in line for a £8,000 ‘loyalty grant’.

However, her suspicions were confirmed when he went on to ask her to go to the Post Office and withdraw £210 to activate the grant.

She said: “People should be aware this is going on, especially pensioners.”
