BEWARE-BOGUS CREDIT CARD CON

URGENT POLICE WARNING

Police reminding people to remain vigilant following a series of attempted fraud offences in Sedgley this week.

On all three occasions, callers claiming to be from a local police station have contacted elderly residents over the telephone claiming that credit card details have been stolen.

The caller then asked the person to put the phone down and call their bank – only to remain on the other end of the line waiting, ready to then pretend to be a bank worker and steal all of their security details.

Our advice is simple
Your bank (or local or any officer at any police station) will never ask for your PIN.

Never be conned into giving out these details.

The caller may also claim that a courier will call round to collect your card. This is also untrue and if contacted in this way, residents should call 101 immediately.
