Fake Calls Impersonating Action Fraud

Action Fraud (www.actionfraud.police.uk) is the national Police reporting centre for all fraud and cyber related crime and provides quality information and products to help protect yourself, family, and business.

I am aware of information that suggests fraudsters are making telephone calls to the public and impersonating Action Fraud.

Currently, none of these reports appear to originate from within Cambridgeshire.


If you get a call from someone claiming to be from Action Fraud, hang up immediately it is highly likely a scam.

Action Fraud will NOT cold call the public either by telephone, social media, text, or email. If you wish to communicate with Action Fraud, then visit their genuine website www.actionfraud.police.uk and use the contact details on the webpage

If you suspect that you may have been a victim of a scam, then contact your Bank immediately and then report to Action Fraud.
