Beware of bogus bailiffs, says enforcement industry

Industry News | 16/05/19

People are at risk from fraudsters masquerading as enforcement agents (bailiffs) and small businesses are a popular target, according to the civil enforcement industry’s trade body, CIVEA.

The warning comes after CIVEA identified cases of fraudsters using the government’s public register of enforcement agents to demand payments for bogus government debts. The details of certificated enforcement agents are used to put pressure on people to pay quickly saying that costs will go up if they delay. They threaten to visit within hours with a locksmith.
