Please be aware of a telephone scam targeting the elderly and vulnerable in our communities. If you are elderly or know someone who is elderly or vulnerable please ensure you know how to spot this type of fraud.

HOW IT WORKS

The victim receives a call by someone who claims to be from their bank or the police. They say they are investigating fraudulent activity on their card or bank account and need further information

NEVER GIVE YOUR PERSONAL DETAILS OVER THE PHONE.

Your bank or police will never call you to verify your personal details or PIN by phone. Hang up if you get a call like this.
