Calls from Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) being Spoofed with the number +448000720161 - Expert Opinion

Tellows users have reported receiving calls from the number 08000720161, with the caller claiming to be representatives from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). These callers claim to inform users about changes in benefit payments or adjustments to their accounts. With the myriad of employees at DWP, it is highly likely that this number is legitimate. However, it's important to note that DWP typically does not make direct calls regarding personal account details over the phone. To ensure safety and avoid potential scams, individuals should exercise caution and verify the legitimacy of such calls independently through official channels provided by DWP.

    Rang me today, from DWP pip tribunal dept, about winning Pip appeal. She told me the date of when I applied, ( which only I know aswell as DWP) asked if I would verify a few questions, DOB, postcode & which bank should it be payed into( never asked any personal details like account number )Said I would receive payment 3-5 days time and award letter would follow. I do believe this to be a genuine number.
