North Yorkshire Trading Standards has received reports of a Hotpoint washing machine telephone scam.
The company revealed the latest hoax via twitter, explaining that scam callers were telephoning residents stating their Hotpoint washing machine warranty had expired.
NY Trading Standards wrote “We have received a complaint re scam callers telephoning residents about Hotpoint washing machine warranties expiring. If you get a call and you’re concerned, hang up and report it to Action Fraud.”
Hotpoint washing machines are currently covered for a full 12 months by the company’s own parts and labour guarantee. If you register your appliance, Hotpoint will extend the warranty to include free parts for the first 10 years, providing they are fitted by their own engineers.
