I have constantly being phoned by a Mr M Cooper who says he's from the Minister of Justice & informs me i have monies waiting to be paid to me & all have to pay is the Tax by Pay Point so the monies can be released.

His phone number is XXXXXXXXXXX he says his badge number is 1278AREXX & my claim number is 18732AJH.

i phoned the Ministry of Justice, they say he does not work for them.

Is it not against the law to imitate a Governmental official?

Could you check to see who this person is.
