SCAM ALERT Increase in fraud incidents involving bogus police officers

Alert message sent 17/05/2018 10:47:00

Information sent on behalf of Notts Police



We've recently seen an increase in fraud incidents where the offender claims to be a police officer.

They usually start off cold calling the victim, telling them that they're investigating their bank and the people who work there are corrupt. As part of the investigation, they ask the victim to transfer or withdraw large sums of money.

A police officer would NEVER ask you to withdraw money or transfer money to another account. This is a con.

Please #tell2 and make sure you elderly or vulnerable loved ones are aware of this scam.

If you think you’ve been targeted or want to report a fraud incident, please call Action Fraud as soon as possible on 0300 123 2040.
