Courier Fraud - Stroud Area

Alert message sent 30/01/2020 11:45:00

Information sent on behalf of Gloucestershire Constabulary


Good morning,

We are aware that a number of people in the Stroud area have received phone calls from fraudsters claiming to be Police Officers who have said they are conducting undercover investigations into 'fraud rings' and have asked victims to withdraw large amounts of cash before handing it over to a courier.

Neither the Police, nor your bank, will ever ask you to withdraw or move your money as part of an investigation.

If you receive a call like this, please hang up and report it to us via 101 - preferably by using another phone to ensure the fraudsters are not still on the line.

Kind regards,
Victoria Brinton - Cyber Protect Officer
