A post in a public Facebook page has warned residents about a phone scam in South Gloucestershire.

One resident posted a warning on the public Facebook group Shout Out Pucklechurch warning of a phone scam.

A number of residents have reportedly been contacted by someone claiming to be from Nectar, informing them that they have won a £200 Argos voucher.

It asks residents to send their name and Nectar Card number.

This has officially been confirmed as a scam by Nectar.

The post in the group said: "The prize draw they claim you have won the voucher for may actually be the name of a real promotion but has nothing to do with these people who are trying to steal your loyalty points."
