Police warning following attempted courier fraud incidents in Leamington Spa

Figures from 29th April show there were nine attempted courier frauds in Leamington Spa, where offenders have called victims pretending to be from the police. They will state that the victim's bank cards have been used fraudulently, and then ask them to contact their bank.

The fraudsters then stay on the line, in order to obtain bank details before sending a courier to collect the bank card, and use it to obtain cash. Fortunately each of the victims have realised this is a scam, and have not handed over any details.

Warwickshire Police are issuing the following advice:

    If you receive a call like this, please hang up immediately and call 101 from a different phone. If there        is a crime in progress, please call 999.
    Please share this message with any elderly friends and relatives.
    Remember the police and bank would never ask for your PIN or send a courier to collect your card.

If you have any questions or further information regarding these offences, please contact the Team direct or use the 101 non-emergency number.
