Bank Card Scam

Dec 8, 2017

Our PCSO has advised of a scam going on in the local area involving bank cards. It has been reported that members of the public receive a telephone call purporting to be from an official from the bank reporting concerns about problems with a bank card. The caller appears to know some of the bank details of the victim. The caller says that they will be delivering a replacement card to the house. When the official arrives, he/she hands over the new card and then says that they need to take the old card away. This results in the scammer walking off with a perfectly good bank card.

The police advise to report any such call to the police immediately and not to hand over your bank card to anyone. Banks would never perform such an exchange in person.
