|Help protect yourself and your neighbours against telephone scams 13 January, 2015|
There has been an increase in the reporting of telephone scams in the last month, particularly the type of calls in which the caller impersonates either a police officer, or a fraud officer or bank employee, and then either tries to get bank account details off the resident or suggests that they will send someone round to collect their bank cards and any valuable items to ‘keep them safe’.
Please be wary of telephone calls warning you of fraudulent activity on your bank account.
To report a scam, contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline on 03454 04 05 06 and Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040, or visit www.actionfraud.police.uk[+ go back...]
