It's a Scam.

It's a Scam.

A fraudster may contact you claiming to be a police officer, or an official from your bank.

The police or your bank will never ask you for your PIN number or password details to transfer funds or withdraw cash/valuables for someone to collect.

If you believe you have been scammed, you can contact Action Fraud, the UK's national reporting centre for fraud and cybercrime. You can make a report and also find help and support: More » or 0300 123 2040.

You can also get more information and advice by visiting and report non urgent crime or provide information to 101.
