Beware Scammers During Coronavirus

Unfortunately, scammers are still operating during the Coronavirus emergency 🙁

We have been made aware of a telephone scam received by a local resident yesterday. They received a call telling them that a sum of money (£600 in this case) had been transferred by their debit card and sent abroad. Resident put down the phone and telephoned their bank direct. Bank confirmed that is was a scam but warned the resident that they may try the scam again.

So everyone please be vigilant of all such telephone calls and never give your bank or personal details out over the phone – your own Bank will never ask for those. If in doubt, put down the phone and then ring your bank direct (not using any phone number the scammer gave you).
