A letter was sent to my address in connection with this call, I have since phoned the dwp, they say that they know nothing of this, this number is used for scamming, not always, but on this occasion it was.

Pretty sure this is a scam, saying indeed it is a dwp call is misleading as the only way for the scam to work is if it appears to be a genuine call, the number will occasionally spoofed

I've been called by this number twice when it was scheduled, and one unexpected call today. I didn't answer it today as nothing had been arranged, but the previous occasions were 100% genuine. The negative ratings are due to the unexpected calls I assume, it's unusual behavior from them, as they always text first and leave a note in my journal, but today they did neither.

Claimed to be from Universal Credit but no journal message, email or advance warning. Stated the last 3 letters of my account name and post code to confirm it was them and get me to continue with giving them my passwords/security answers, which also seemed odd and raised some alarm bell, as this doesn’t normally happen.

It is DWP indeed, it’s not a scam. If you got this call, it’s about a referral to other services (i.e. Training for job applications, Kickstart scheme) that are collaborating with the job centre. That’s why they don’t appear in your journal.

Has to be a scam I didn’t answer the phone but normal Universal Credit calls are listed in a Journal so they if it’s not listed and you got no text message reminder about when they call you then it has to be a fake call.

Genuine number, you are told by universal credit you will get a call and it will either come up as a 0800, withheld or private number and not to ignore it. You are usually given pre warning they are going to call though.

Rang at 08. 59 an 11. 51 on a Saturday claiming to be DWP. I'm waiting for them to contact me about something but I think this call is just coincidence. I ignore both calls, Checked on here and rang it back. Automated response. Don't think this can be genuine, On a Saturday

For all the people on here saying this is a genuine number for DWP no one is desputing that, But this number called my phone at 12:05am? I was about to answer and give them my frank opinion on which XXXXX thought it a good idea to phone anyone at that time, But the call stopped ringing after just 2 rings? I’m betting this is a scammed number made to look and sound genuine, It’s easily done. I’d be very careful I have a friend who recently was made redundant he’s said if they wanted to call you t
