Increase in fraudster scams

An increasing number of reports of fraudster scams have been reported to surrey police.

On each occasion the victim receives a phone call from someone claiming to be a police officer tell them that their card has been compromised and that they need to call the bank and cancel it.
They then say that a courier will be round to collect the card.

Meanwhile, the fraudster stays on the line, leaving it open and obtains the victim’s bank details while they think they are phoning the bank. A courier – sometimes a taxi – calls at the victim’s address saying they have been sent by the police to collect the parcel.

If you’ve received any calls of this nature, please call Surrey Police on 101
