Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

Please be aware of Scammers targeting the elderly and vulnerable. We have seen a variety of Scams across the last 7 days we are sad to say it has cost some people thousands of pounds.

One such Courier Scam saw an elderly person tricked into parting with a large sum of money because they were told the Metropolitan Police wanted their help in tackling a crime. NO Police force will ever call you and ask you to pay them money like this.

Others have been Scammed by bogus calls from banks or Phone operators. If in doubt hang up and call from a separate phone a number you know to be true. Or call 101 for help and advice.
