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.
