Scam

Alert message sent 30/07/2020 17:41:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary


Recently a resident of Overton has received a telephone call from an unknown person, suggesting they were calling from Basingstoke Police. The caller stated that they had someone in custody for the fraudulent use of their credit card and requested that they read back their credit card number to ensure that it was the right one etc.
Luckily the recipient saw right though them and no details were given. The caller hung up when challenged.
Police will never phone and ask for any banking details.
