北愛爾蘭住房管理局警告租戶注意租金騙局

NIHE說,它的一些客戶收到了不請自來的電話,要求他們額外支付10英鎊的租金,以便它能對他們的房屋進行維修。

該組織告訴租戶,它 "絕不會突然聯繫你,要求你提供個人信息或銀行資料"。

在其網站上,該組織警告租戶,騙子 "可能已經掌握了一些關於你的信息,並可能冒充住房管理局工作人員或我們的承包商"。

它說,可能有人試圖說服客戶通過電話付款,透露更多的個人信息,或點擊通過未經請求的電子郵件發送給他們的鏈接。

"NIHE說:"我們永遠不會打電話或發電子郵件要求你提供銀行賬戶信息,為你的租金賬戶設置直接扣款,除非這是你首先向我們要求的。

它告訴租戶,如果他們認為電話是可疑的,不要害怕結束電話,並要求向他們報告所有此類事件。

"它說:"如果你接到一個可疑的電話或電子郵件,對方自稱為住房管理局工作或代表住房管理局,請撥打03448 920 900向我們報告。


The NIHE said some of its customers have received unsolicited calls asking them to pay £10 extra in rent so it can carry out repairs to their homes.

The organisation told tenants that it will "never contact you out of the blue to ask for your personal information or bank details".

On its website, it warned tenants that the fraudsters "may already have some information about you, and may pose as Housing Executive staff, or one of our contractors".

It said there may be attempts to convince customers to make payments over the phone, divulge more personal details or click on links sent to them via unsolicited emails.

"We will never call or email you to ask you for your bank account details to set up a direct debit for your rent account unless this is something you have requested from us first," the NIHE said.

It told tenants not to be afraid to end a call if they think it is suspicious, and requested that all such incidents are reported to them.

"If you receive a suspicious phone call or email from someone claiming to work for or represent the Housing Executive, report it to us by calling 03448 920 900," it said.
