The police would like to remind everyone that there are some unpleasant folks around who prey on the elderly members of our society. They purport to be calling from the Bank or from the Police and gently lead people to giving out their bank details. This is something that does not happen with genuine calls from banks or the police.
Please be aware that this type of crime is on the increase and if you have any doubts about the nature of the caller – just hang up. Then do a 1471 and report the phone number to the Police by calling 101.
Please do not be fooled into giving out your details to anyone who asks for them.
