No nothing of the sort

The number you have been given to call is for the Wales Enforcement Office. They are the official enforcement office for court orders, fines, etc and will pursue the respondents in a case where they have been asked to pay a fine. It is an official court office so would not be a scam but it could also be a case of mistaken identity, especially if you have not been involved with the courts recently, or at all. They have quoted you a case number ***** is issued when a court case is brought in so there must have been some court case open at some point to trigger this. I suggest you contact the number and quote the case reference to see exactly what this is about and why they think you owe them any money. If needed they could make an attachment of earnings order without your consent but obviously you would want to try and resolve this first, and see if you are really the debtor in this case or if this is an error on their part. So you need to call them, ask for details of the fine you are supposed to be paying and see if it does relate to you and dispute it if needed. For example it could be a motoring offence which you were unaware of but only you can find out the details as they will only release these to you over the phone. I trust this has answered your query.
