SCAM FRAUD ALERT

Alert message sent 12/12/2018 17:28:00

Information sent on behalf of Gloucestershire Constabulary



This is a message from PCSO Mark Doyle.

Today we have received 2 calls from 2 residents in the Cirencester area where both have received phone calls from people claiming to be employees of the police. One caller has been described as having a foreign accent.

It appears the callers who are portraying themselves to be working for the police are trying to make potential victims believe that their credit cards have been used. They then are asking for details of bank accounts etc.

Please do NOT give any personal information over the telephone as it is likely to be a scam. PLEASE MAKE FRIENDS AND FAMILY AWARE.
