FIRST: YET ANOTHER COURIER FRAUD - THIS TIME IN DATCHET:
A relative, reported that her elderly father had received a telephone call from a man, saying he was 'PC Eric Cole' from the police. He was told to verify that the call was genuine, by putting the phone down and dialling 999 and then asking for him. This he did, but of course the Fraudster did not terminate the call, but handed the receiver over to an accomplice who acted as the emergency telephonist. When the victim, put the phone down to redial 999, the call was still connected.
‘PC Cole’ explained that there had been some fraudulent use of his credit cards. He would cancel them for him. Details were passed over and ‘PC Cole’ said he would send a courier to collect them. Would he please put them in an envelope and hand them to the courier, which he would organise for Monday 13th between 10 a.m. / 12 noon.
The victim, told the relative what was happening. She explained it was a scam and called the police. PCSO Les Bradfield has just come back from being with the victim - will be with the victim this morning in case the Courier arrives.
Please let everyone you know how this works and if they get a call from the police to say there has been fraud on their cards, to contact someone they trust before taking any action.
