Scam Telephone Calls

Warwickshire Police are urging people to be vigilant following a series of scam phone calls made to Warwickshire residents.

Several people from the Stratford area and rural villages have reported being called this week Tuesday 10th May to Friday 13th May 2016. On each occasion the scammers purported to be from the police in London, that they were the fraud squad and had arrested a male in an Apple store with stolen credit cards.

Scammers typically target elderly people, and have on a couple of occasions have asked the victims to withdraw money from the bank and hand it over to a courier who had been sent to their address.

Fortunately the majority of the victims have realised this is a scam and have not given of their bank details nor withdrawn money.

Police are issuing the following advice:

Do not give out any personal details over the phone.

The banks and police will never ask you for your PIN or for money

If you receive a call like this, please hang up immediately and call 101 from a different phone. If there is a crime in progress, please call 999.

Please share this message with any elderly friends and relatives.
