Impersonation Fraud

Alert message sent 16/06/2020 17:45:00

Information sent on behalf of Lincolnshire Police

We have received 4 more reports of police impersonation fraud in the Sleaford area this morning. 

The residents received phone calls from a person purporting to be a police officer and claiming to have arrested someone for using a cloned card in the name of the victim.  Fortunately the potential victims realised that this was scam and contacted Lincolnshire Police.

If you receive a similar call, hang up and call 101 on a different line. In the event that you’ve arranged for cash to be collected by an impersonator, call us on 999 immediately.

Remember, your bank and our officers will never, ever ask for your bank details. They will also never ask you to withdraw cash for them and to send it via courier.

Please share this information with your neighbours, friends and family to make them more aware of this type of scam.
