The £600 Scam

Please be aware of another new scam that we have been made aware of.

The details of how one local person received the call are below;


I had an automated call telling me that a bank transaction for £600 had been made against my account, and to 'press 1'.
I didn't, but checked my account and no such transaction was present.
I then phoned the bank fraud department, and they advised that there are THOUSANDS of such calls, mentioning £600, coming in.


ADVICE : ignore the call;  do NOT press 1; if in doubt, call your bank.
 
Second call of the day by an automated scammer call.
This time it related to 'your Visa/Mastercard', but the same value £600.
Same process - press 1 to stop the transaction.


Beware - don't press 1!
