Scammer Alert

Alert message sent 13/02/2019 16:09:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

Good Afternoon,

I am emailing to make you aware of a incidents which have occurred over the past couple of days in Netley and Hamble.

Victims have received a phone call from person/s purporting to be from their bank. The scammer/s have advised the victims that new a bank card will be in the post tomorrow and have asked if the victim would like the same PIN number. The victims have given over their PIN number. They have engaged in conversation with the victim and then offered to collect the 'old' bank cards.
Somebody then arrives at the victims address and the old bank card/s are handed over.
Victims have subsequently had considerable amounts of money withdrawn from their account/s.

Please be aware of this scam &
 - NEVER give out your PIN number to anybody
- Shred all correspondence before disposing of it
- Never give out personal details over the phone or to anybody that you don't know
-If the 'bank' calls, arrange to call the bank back yourself using a phone number that you have been given by your own bank. Try to use a different phone to make the call.
-Cut up expired/old cards before disposing of them
- Do not use an ATM if the ATM appears tampered with in any way

Please remain vigilant & share this information with any elderly or vulnerable neighbours or relatives that you have that may not be receiving this email.

Please contact police on 101 if you believe that you have been the victim of a scam like this that hasn't been reported.

Kind regards,
