Leicestershire police are warning that fraudsters are calling people pretending to be from a bank or similar organisation.  The caller will typically warn victims that their money is in danger and that they must move their money to a ‘safe’ place.  In most instances the person making the call already knows some details about the person they are trying to scam ie a name or their bank or building society to make the fraud more believable.

Please remember that;

  • Banks will never contact customers and ask for personal account details or pin numbers
  • Banks will never contact their customers and request transfer of savings
  • The police will never request personal account details or request a transfer of savings
