Beware phone crooks operating in our area
Reports of residents receiving phone calls purporting to be from Police investigating historic bank frauds on your account.
This call is followed up by asking the victim to call a number to reach their bank 08000322491
This number puts the victim through to a convincing recorded/interactive message asking for the victims bank details, address etc.
Your bank will NEVER ask for such details over the phone nor will Police ask you to give such details
NEVER give out personal details such as PIN numbers or passwords
NEVER give your bank cards to anyone particularly if a bank? Has said they will arrange for a courier to pick up your cards etc.
If this happens, notify police and contact your bank (If possible in person at your local branch)
If you would like to know more about how to combat this type of fraud or know someone who might be susceptible or vulnerable to this type of fraud, myself or another member of the relevant Police team will be only too happy to speak to them. Please let me know via e-mail to
