Please be aware that there are telephone ‘scams’ being perpetrated at present. The most recent involves people being targeted to buy lottery tickets. Once the fraudsters have your bank details they will ‘milk’ your account dry.
I should like to remind you that neither the police, nor your bank will ever ask for your PIN number, and if anyone asks for these details, over the phone, then just HANG UP IMMEDIATELY.
Sadly, it seems as if it is the elderly that are being targeted in this way. So please be vigilant.
