Bogus calls from people claiming to be from The DPS

I wanted to warn you about a bogus phone call that one of our tenants received this week. The tenant in question had been contacted by someone claiming to be from The DPS. The caller told the tenant that he owed The DPS money, and asked that it be paid in to a specific bank account.

Under no circumstances does The DPS ever make phone calls saying that tenants, landlords or letting agents owe us money. Please report any calls like this to your local police authority.
