We have just had a call purporting to be from Liberal Democrats party headquarters.
A heavily accented voice asked for support in the "Whitstable" by-election, and suggested that I donate "as little as £25"
I politely explained that I would not give my card details over the phone on an unsolicited call, at which the caller hung up.
A check on 1471 showed that the number was withheld
Now it could have been a genuine call, and if so we need to train our callers better. However, I suspect a fraud / phishing attempt.
Be wary of such calls, and if you get a similar one, do not give your bank details . Instead, to donate to the party, go online or telephone the party directly.
