SCAM WARNING FROM THE POLICE

We’re seeing uplift in scamming sadly linked to the virus. Can you please kindly update your website/ social media to reflect the types of scams and share with your teams to enable them to refer customers to this to ease their anxiety.

There is also a scam going around on social media where they send the victim a text messaging saying they have been seen out of their house on more than one occasion which has resulted in them being fined £35. There is a link for the victim to click where they can enter their cards details.

The scammer has sent a previous message which makes it appear to be from gov.uk so makes it look legit!!
