Telephone Scam


Chief Inspector Duckworth and Inspector Evans would like me to make you aware of a good news story that took place on Monday 6th February.

A resident received a phone call on Monday 6th February, from a male stating he was Sargent Harris from Hammersmith Police Station.

The male stated to the resident that they had got his debit card from his address, when the resident asked what the details were the male stated that he could not give that information and asked him to ring back on 161.

The resident hung up the phone and contacted police on another phone to report this scam.

This is a great example of an attempted phone scam and great crime prevention advice to everyone if they ever receive any phone calls similar to protect themselves becoming victims of fraud.
