Scam Alert

Alert message sent 19/05/2022 18:04:00

Information sent on behalf of South Yorkshire Police


SCAM ALERT: We wish to inform people of a potential telephone scam circulating in South Yorkshire today after receiving reports from members of the public they had received calls.

People are reporting an automated telephone message claiming to be from South Yorkshire Police informing the recipient their phone number has been identified as being used in crime. The message quotes an ‘Operation Recover’ to make itself seem more genuine.

We can confirm this is completely false. One number reported to us as being used is 0114 324 0974.

Please be wary of this if you receive a similar call or voicemail message.

Anyone who thinks they have been a victim of a scam like this should report it to Action Fraud - the national fraud and cyber crime reporting centre - by calling 0300 123 2040
