Scam Alert

Alert message sent 24/08/2016 14:36:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

I am the Neighbourhood policing sergeant for the Chepping Wye Valley team, covering Flackwell Heath, Loudwater, Tylers Green and Hazlemere.

The team are trying their hardest to raise awareness of frauds and I would like to request your help.

If you have any potentially vulnerable family members, neighbours or friends, please can you make them aware that they may be targeted by fraudsters.

Very credible sounding criminals are persuading some people to either hand over considerable amounts or cash or transfer money into other accounts. often claiming to be from a reputable organisation.

No reputable organisations would ever contact someone out of the blue and ask them to do this. 

A local resident was a victim on our area yesterday, and I am aware of another on a neighbouring policing area. Colleagues from CID are investigating.

The Neighbourhood team are asking that if you know someone who could be a victim of this, please make them aware that any such contact will almost certainly be a scam and that they should simply end the call.

Thank you
