December Report

Posted on 13th January, 2019

UPDATE: 14 Jan 19: Telephone Scam

This message has been sent as a warning to residents:


A telephone scam is circulating across the county where residents have received telephone calls from people claiming to be from Westminster Police. The caller states that they are investigating a crime or have a suspect in custody who has their bank details. The caller then asks them to reveal their card details for checking.


A second call is often made a short while later claiming to be from their bank. Again this appears to be part of the scam. Please remember never to give bank details to anyone you do not know or trust and do not continue conversations with persons you do not know or trust.


If you experience a similar call, please report it direct to the national fraud and cybercrime centre, Action Fraud on 0300-1232040 or via their website at http://www.actionfraud.police.uk
