Credit card scam warning

Northamptonshire police have been alerted to a credit card scam.

They believe victims receive a call from somebody claiming to be a police officer, they are then advised that their credit card has been cloned and that somebody is in custody for the offence.

At this point the caller asks for the victim’s bank details and pin number and states that a courier will be sent out to collect their credit card.

Police are asking anyone who receives a call of this nature to contact Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 urgently and advise not to give out any personal details.
