National Insurance Suspension Scam: How It Works
There is a new National Insurance Suspension scam going around nationwide in the United Kingdom. It happens at the beginning of this week. It comes as a fake National Insurance scam call claiming to be from the government, mainly using the “suspended” scare. We’ll show you below what the scammers say precisely so you can protect yourself if these phone scams approach you.
Feel free to add your experience in the comments section at the bottom if you received any calls like this.
The bogus automated calls tell recipients that their National Insurance number has been compromised. They are encouraged to press 1. However, rest assured that these crooks are not from the National Insurance office.
Let’s dive into the National Insurance Suspension scam with its variations and expose how they work. You can also report the criminals at the end of the article if you experienced any suspicious activity.
Scammers call from random numbers but use Caller ID spoofing that we assume you are aware of. They make the name of the National Insurance appear on your smartphone display. As people believe the call is legitimate, they pick up and respond with honest intent.
The National Insurance Scam Call Script
Let’s say you respond to the call. An automated system states a message along these lines:
“Hello, this call is from the National Insurance. The reason we called you today is to let you know that we’ve got your National Insurance Number suspended due to suspicious activity on your account. If you want to challenge your case, press 1”.
The same type of fraud happens in the United States (the Social Security Benefits scam) and Canada, known as the Social Insurance Number Call.
Scared by their National Insurance number suspension while believing the phone is legitimate, many victims press the key 1. What happens then? If you do, you are connected to a live operator (aka the scammer) who asks for all your personal information to prove your identity. The more you give away, the worse the situation can get. This info will be used for identity theft.
Other Variation of the Scam
In a different variation of the National Insurance Suspension scam, the criminal tells his potential victims that they are investigated for fraud once they answer the phone. Similar to the situation above, the scammers proceed to ask for National Insurance Number and financial details. Sometimes they prepare for the call using information publicly available.
Essentially, they call targeted people after finding their info online and doing a little bit of homework. Many fall for this fraud because they share a lot on their social media platforms, which is never recommended.
National Insurance Number Scam Call: How To Avoid
Ignore the National Insurance scam call. What’s interesting is that the callers are not even from the United Kingdom. They use the same automated machine in the U.K., U.S., and Canada, but only change the national organization’s name. How to avoid them?

zinaxshop looks like scam company. I found a microwave, not available anywhere else in the world, at half the regular price, so i checked it out. They have no reviews, and they take you straight to payment info once you find your product. I’m not doing it.
good for you
I just placed an order with SHOPJCM.COM. I don’t know if it’s a scam or not because I received a confirmation from them. I hope they are legit otherwise I’ll have to contact my creditor and cancel my payment to them. I’m waiting to hear from SHOPJCM.com regarding shipping details. Will keep you apprised.
me too .. Huijuo is a scam stay away
SCAM!!! DO NOT PURCHASE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING FROM ‘tuzikook’ I paid 50$ for a mystery box, and they sent me a wireless charge of 5$.
SPYSAVAGE is a scam. BEWARE. 2 black african guys, one of whom ”Mike” can barely speak properly, and 1 calling himself Ruben Villenueva. They have whatsapp accounts with swedish and austin texas numbers, but they changed these. They come across as persuasive and do things to make you trust them. They ask for paypal payments to family and friends so you cant retrieve money from them. They keep asking for money, promising they will do the job once they have made 1 last payment. The final thing for me was that one of them said their servers went down and wanted me to pay 800$ for it, whilst the other one said they were working again! Amateur crooks who couldnt hack a tincan! STAY AWAY.
If you get scam by white people, make sure you tell us they we’re white, like you mention black guys!

This fool will reap what he sows, he stole millions of dollars and by God’s grace will not get away with it. He has to be stop and arrested and they need to throw the key away after we get our money back. I was encourage to trust but be cafeful not to put all my money invested with this company. I lost almost everything. This was the first time that i started saving my money. I thought why not received extra fast money like people were doing in the beginning. I fiqure sense that idiot reached his goal, he decided to close shop and start up a new name for the samelike business. We need to stick together to make sure this fool get what he deserves. You can file a complaint at, fca.org.uk. I did and they are going to investigate this idiot. I would like to have zoom meetings on this scam of a company. In Exodus 22:7, If a man shall deliver unto his neighbor money or stuff to keep, and it be stolen out of the man’s house; if the thief be found, let him pay double. 1Timothy 6:10, For the love of money is the root o all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 1corinthians 6:10, Nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. Let us come together and fight to get our money back through Prayers.
On May 20, 2021 I ordered 1 trial bottle of Vigor Smart at $5.95 shipping only. This was sent to me along with another product, NOT ordered, for a total of 4 charges: 2 @ $5.95, plus 2 @ $1.00. Then, a few days later, I received another product in the mail, also not ordered, of which I refused delivery and returned to sender. Now, June 7, my credit card company called and asked if I had just made the two pending charges of $89 each by this company. NO I DID NOT. Beware of this fraudulent company!!!
