Telephone Fraud

This is a message sent via Thames Valley Alert. This information has been sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Message sent by William Pomroy (Police, Neighbourhood officer, Henley)

We are receiving lots of calls regarding residents being called by someone claiming to be an police officer from Scotland Yard. This officer then attempts to scam the victim out of money by claiming the victims bank is under investigation and they need the victim to withdraw money and hand it over to police as it may be counterfeit. Please know Police would never ask anyone to withdraw money as part of an investigation or ask you to purchase expensive items. Please pass this message on to elderly relatives or neighbours, as they are most at risk.
