Scam Awareness

Alert message sent 25/07/2021 11:07:00

Information sent on behalf of Humberside Police


An Bogus caller has been reported in your
neighbourhood.


Dear Resident,

Scam calls come in all shapes and sizes at the moment so please have a read through the below guidance for information: 

- NEVER reveal your personal details. Do not even verify your name
 

- Hang up phone. It may seem obvious however people often feel pressured to continue a conversation out of politeness

- Ring the Organisation. If you're at all unsure that a call from a company is genuine, end the call, look up the number for the company and ring them yourself to check legitimacy. 


- If the call is on your mobile phone, select the number and click 'BLOCK'

- Talk to your phone provider for call blocking services or call screening to be installed on your home phone

- Contact Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 to report or if the caller claims to be from a company, report the scam call directly to them.


Kind Regards

Dave
Cleethorpes Policing Team
