Scam calls impersonating Police.

Please be aware of scammers impersonating Police.

3 people were called in the Folkestone area yesterday by scammers impersonating Police Officers. In one call they asked if they knew a person who had been arrested using their Barclay Card and in the other 2 calls, they stated that people had been arrested for Fraud. None of those called were taken in by this and disconnected the calls and contacted Police.

If you receive a call from someone claiming to be the Police and you are not sure if it is a genuine call. Then obtained their details and call 101. Never call a number that they supply and try to use an alternative telephone to the one that you were called on. If you cannot use an alternative telephone, then either wait 5 minutes to call using the same phone or before ringing 101, call a family member to make sure that the line has been cleared, as Fraudsters will stay on the phone and you could yourself speaking to them again.

Remember, the Police will never ask you for passwords, Pin numbers or ask you to remove cash to give to an investigator or courier as part of an investigation
