SCAM TELEPHONE CALL

POLICE REF: 0456S 031117

SCAM TELEPHONE CALLER, ROSS ON WYE 03/11/2017

Please be aware of a scam telephone call recently made to a Ross-on-Wye resident.

The victim received a phone call from a male purporting to be from the company TalkTalk’ and was calling concerning “issues with the ISP”.

He stated his name was ‘Shaun Dawson’, spoke with a foreign accent and gave an address of Evesham Street in London. The scammer sounded very convincing and was allowed access to the victim’s computer and personal details were compromised. Luckily the victim’s bank intercepted transactions believing them to be fraudulent.

If you receive a suspicious cold call, end it immediately

Ensure the line is cleared before making any further calls, if in doubt use another phone.


Phone Scams Advice

Fraudsters are cunning in their phone-scam tactics and it’s not always easy or obvious to tell straight away whether it’s a scam.

What is a vishing phone scam?

These cold-call scams typically involve fraudsters deceiving people into believing they are speaking to a police officer, a member of bank staff or a representative of another trusted company or agency such as a government department.

Usually, the fraudster will convince an individual that they have been a victim of fraud and will ask for personal and financial information in order to gain access to their account.

Beware! Do not give your bank details, never disclose the following details:
  • Four-digit card Pin to anyone, including the bank or police.
  • Full password or online banking codes
  • Personal details, unless you are sure who you are talking to

  • If you think you have been subject to this or a victim of fraud, call Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040
