Ministry of Justice warns of scam callers offering 'fine refunds'.
Scammers are using the name of yet another government agency to try to con people.
The Ministry of Justice is today warning people about a scam which involves people posing as ministry staff.
They say a person or group are making phone calls claiming they are calling on behalf of a bank or the Ministry, and are offering refunds on fines.
In some some cases the callers have known the full names of the people and who they bank with.
The Ministry of Justice says they do not engage outside agencies to make calls on their behalf or charge people a fee when it makes refunds.
The Ministry is urging anyone who receives a suspicious phone call purporting to be from the Ministry of Justice to contact them on 0800 770 025.
