Dorset Police – Scam Warning Information

From time to time, we will be posting information on known scams occurring in the vicinity, particularly where the information may not be readily available elsewhere. The information is supplied by Action Fraud.

We have received reports of the following scam occurring in the area, the scammers are in the main targeting vulnerable and elderly residents. 
Residents have received a call from a male purporting to be from their bank informing them that they require a new debit card. Whilst on the phone another male will present at their home address. When allowed entry the male will collect their ‘old’ debit card, and in return for their cooperation they have been given a gift card in an envelope.  
The male at the property will then take their bank card, and the person on the phone informs them that another appointment will be arranged for a new card to be supplied. No new card arrives and by this time the bank card / details have generally been used by the scammers.
Please be vigilant and make relatives and neighbours aware of this type of scam, especially elderly or vulnerable, the scammers can be very convincing. 
Please hang up on any similar calls, do not give out any personal information and do not follow instructions from cold callers.
Before making another call from your phone please test your phone by phoning a friend or relative to ensure that you are not still connected to the scammer.
Please phone 999 if persons attend your property.
If you have any information please phone 101, information can also be passed to Action Fraud by phoning 0300 123 2040 or visiting the website
