Card Scam Warning 14 Oct 2014

We have had reports of local residents being targeted in a card scam.

The cold caller states that there is a problem with the cardholder's card that they are contacting.  They then instruct the caller to ring the number on the back of the card.  However, the cold caller stays on the line and the victim then thinks that they are talking to the genuine Bank.  Personal details are then given to the fraudster.

If you are targetted please hang up the phone straightaway and DO NOT give out any personal information. 

For further advice please contact the Financial Investigation Unit Tel 01481 755844.
