    Thats a Scam. The wording is totally off. They will try to call you and pretending to verify information to ask you details that they can use for a scam. Be careful. If you have doubts call PIP yourself and ask if they have sent you a message. Be aware they spoof numbers and they may call you from a number that looks to be PIP.

    Be careful.

    The private number rings alarm bells for me because PIP usually ring from a 0800 number.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
