Fake Police Detective Targets Bridport
11:13am 17th October 2014
Bridport is being targeted by a phone scammer who's pretending to be a Detective Wright from Hammersmith CID.
The Police have told Wessex FM they received a number of calls from worried residents yesterday afternoon.
They're now offering people this advice:
- Do not give any banking or personal details out over the phone.
- Do not engage with callers or follow any directions to ring them back.
- Hang up.
The say genuine Police officers will not ask for any sensitive or financial data.
