Police Officer Scam Alert

 

Please be aware of a scam operating in Lincolnshire this time.

 

Scam details

A telephone call is made by a person stating they are a police officer based in the fraud dept.  They state that suspicious activity has been made on your bank account and they need you to either draw money from your account or transfer it to a safe bank account.

 

A genuine police officer or bank official will NEVER ask you to transfer or draw money from your bank account.  Police officers cannot gain access to your bank account without a court order being granted.

 

If you are contacted by ANY ONE stating to be an official ask a family member or friend to ring the organisation on a different phone to the one you have received the phone call on.  Do NOT ring any numbers that you are given by the caller.

 

You can report any such contact to Action Fraud on Tel: 0300 123 2040.

Private Hire Services Providers

Please can we also ask that taxi and mini cab drivers keep an eye out for any passengers that are collecting packages from residents in Lincolnshire and then travelling straight back out of the county.

Report any such incidents on Tel: 101 or if in progress ring 999.
