Fraud Crime Prevention - Bogus Officials
Published on 21 December 2019 10:58 PM
We have received several reports of fraudsters contacting victims PRETENDING to be from the bank, stating that there has been some fraudulent activity on their bank account and then asking for funds to be transferred to a 'Safe' account.
Your Bank or the Police will NEVER:
- Phone and ask you for your full PIN or banking password
- Ask you to transfer money out of your account
- Send someone to your home to collect cash, PIN's, bank cards or cheque books.
If you receive a call of this nature, report to Action Fraud or if you have transferred any money contact your local Police force.
