Scam Calls

Alert message sent 04/11/2020 18:37:00

Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert

Please be aware that we have seen an increase in scam calls occurring in the area.

The scam occurs when the victim receives a call from somebody purporting to be a Police Officer and that they have had a member of their family in custody and ask the victim to confirm their bank card details.

In another scam the victim has been contacted by someone purporting to be from New Scotland Yard and that the victim needs to assist in a fraud investigation and to draw out a sum of money to check for counterfeit notes and that a courier will attend to collect the money.

Please be aware that the Police will NEVER ask you for any bank details over the phone or ask you to pass any money.

Please make friends and family aware
