Warning to UK veterinary practices over suspicious phone calls
RCVS have today issued a warning to veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses about suspicious telephone calls being made to practices.
In each case, the caller has given a forename, eg Felicity or Christine, claimed to be calling from the RCVS and asked for bank or payment card details in order to refund an over-payment of £235.75 made in June 2014.
The RCVS have made it clear that they would never ask for payment card or bank details, take payments or make refunds over the phone.
They advise that if you have received a similar phone call, or are concerned that you might have inadvertently passed on private financial information, please contact your local police.
