Scam Alert - Television Subcribers - Sidmouth

Alert message sent 02/03/2018 14:04:00

Information sent on behalf of Devon and Cornwall Police

We have received a report from a concerned recipient of a possible fraud relating to television subscribers.

A recipient in the Sidmouth area received a call purporting to be from Sky, stating they were due a refund, wanting banking details so the refund could be paid. The recipient does not have Sky so terminated the call.

Please be mindful when receiving calls of this nature.

Never give any banking or personal details to cold callers purporting to be from companies with recognisable names, make your own enquiries with the company in question using the number provided on your contract .
