Phone scams

Alert message sent 21/05/2020 08:38:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

Dear residents.

We would like to offer you some safeguarding and safety advice regarding scammers that are active at the moment.
We have had reports of police ringing residents asking them for money. Please note that the police nor the banks will ever ring you asking you to withdraw money.
If the police do ever visit your property then please ask to see their warrant card and ring 101 to ask to verify their collar number. Our officers will never mind you carrying out these checks to verify who they are.
If you get any phone calls or emails that you believe to be a scam, are asking for your details or for money please do not engage with them and ring 101 to report it to the police. If anyone turns up at your door asking for money or access to your property and you are unsure who they are then please ring 999 and we will look to send an officer to speak with them.
