ANOTHER COLD CALLER SCAM
The police have advised us this morning that a Somerset coordinator has been the subject of an attempted scam.  This was brought to the attention of a Police Beat Team member. The details are as follows:
 
The Coordinator had a strange phone call from a person claiming to be a DCI from the MET Police stating that her card had been used by her Grandson fraudulently. They named the grandson incorrectly and stated they could not interview him until she rang 162. Luckily, she didn’t phone that number and no bank details were passed.
The Fraud Protect Team advise that it appears this could have easily led into Courier Fraud or a request to transfer funds into a so called "Safe Account".
 
Have no dealings with Cold Callers, whether at the door or on the phone.  If you are tempted to respond because a relative or friend has been named, do nothing until you have spoken with the relative/friend concerned.  Always take your time. Don’t be rushed into any action.
