There seems to have been an increase in the old “This is BT, your broadband is going to be cut off” calls, this time the message is recorded. Ignore the call, I wish I had a pound for every time my broadband was going to be cut off in the last twelve months, and it is still working well. If you are really worried contact BT directly.
The following was issued by Hampshire Constabulary:
|“We have received a number of reports of fraudsters posing as bank staff in the Test Valley area.
Fraudsters are making phone calls and introducing themselves as the manager of the victim’s local bank branch. They are then offering to arrange to deliver new bank cards to the victim’s home address. Whilst at the victim’s address the fraudster will request the victim’s current bank cards and PIN. Once they have left the victim’s address they will make withdrawals from the victim’s bank account.
Please remember that Police and your bank will NEVER:
• Phone you to ask for your 4-digit card PIN or your online banking password
Fraudsters can sound extremely professional and will do all they can to convince you that their call is genuine.
Criminals may already have some information about you, for example your name and address. So don’t assume that a call is genuine just because they have these details or because they claim to represent a legitimate organisation you use or a person that you know.
If you’re ever at all suspicious about a call, then just hang up the phone.
There are, unfortunately, many types of fraud. More information on these can be found at https://www.financialfraudaction.org.uk/consumer/
If you have been a victim of fraud then you can report this to Action Fraud on https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/
All the best and stay safe,
PCSO Richard Sanders
SCAM AND FRAUD ALERT
From Hampshire and IOW Neighbourhood Watch
HINWA (http://www.hinwa-nw.org.uk). April 2019.
TV Licence Billing, Renewal or Refund Fraud
Since September 2018 there have been large numbers of reports of fake emails purporting to be from TV Licensing. Scams involve emails claiming that either a refund is due or there is a problem with billing or with the account. The links in the emails lead to phishing websites designed to steal personal and financial information.
They will use headlines such as ‘correct your licensing information’, ‘billing information updates’ and ‘renew now’ to trick people into clicking on the link within the email.
These emails are sophisticated and convincing. They can catch out anyone – even the Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk admitted to being out caught by this scam earlier this year.
How to keep safe from this type of fraud
1. Always be suspicious of unsolicited requests for personal or financial information in case it is a scam.
2. Never automatically click on links in an unexpected email or text.
3. If in doubt, check with the organisation by phone or email using contact details from your records – do not use contact details given by the fraudsters
4. Do not be rushed into action. If in doubt, delete the email. A genuine organisation will always find a different way to contact you.
If you’ve fallen victim – what next?
5. Stop further payments – contact your bank or cancel your credit card. (Monitor your statements regularly for any unusual activity.)
6. Report this has happened – contact Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or online at actionfraud.police.uk.
