Bogus Telephone Call in Bradford Abbas

Alert message sent 04/04/2019 08:19:00

Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert


Sherborne Neighbourhood Policing Team has received a report of a BT Telephone Scam call in Bradford Abbas.  The Bradford Abbas resident had received repeated calls from a person claiming to be from BT. On the last call the caller told the recipient that it was their ‘last chance’ before legal proceedings.

Fortunately the recipient of the call knew it was a scam and immediately terminated the call. If you receive a call of this nature do not respond to the cold caller and just hang up. Do not volunteer any personal information or be tempted to return the call if a message has been left.

Please make vulnerable relatives and neighbours aware of this scam as we know that this sort of scam call can be extremely upsetting.
The best defence against this type of scam is to be scam aware. You can read about fraudsters and their tactics at the Action Fraud website here:  https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/

Please be vigilant and remember that if someone telephones you, you can not verify who they are.
