Scam call from "bank".

Post by PRS » Sat Jun 18, 2011 12:51 pm

I have just been contacted by a resident of Sutton Veny who recently received a telephone call purporting to come from her bank. The caller asked for her date of birth and said that she would be unable to draw any money if she did not give further details. Fortunately she had the good sense to terminate the call at this stage and to check with her bank. They told her that they never talk about account details over the telephone.
If you receive any call asking for personal details either say "Could you please send me all the details in writing?" or simply put the 'phone down. Most of these 'phone calls are from a number that cannot be traced by dialling 1471.
NEVER give any details that could be used to steal your identity.
