Scam Alert

As we have previously reported, we continue to receive reports of incidents where fraudsters are phoning people pretending to be police officers & bank staff. They will try to convince their victim to give their bank details or withdraw large amounts of cash. This is a scam!

The police, banks and building societies will never ask you to do this. If you ever have doubts about someone phoning you, hang up, wait at least 5 minutes to ensure the line has been terminated and call the company back on an official number (check your bank card or a statement), never call the number the fraudster gives you.

To report fraud – call 999 if its happening now, or 101 if it’s already happened.
