Police warning over fraudsters

Received an email asking you to update your billing information?

Criminals are taking advantage of the situation around Coronavirus by sending fake emails allegedly from your broadband/service provider.

These emails use alarmist language to persuade you to click on links and are an opportunity for criminals to steal your information.

Don't automatically click on links and contact organisations directly using a known number or email.

Fraudsters can approach you in person, through the post, over the phone or online.

Sometimes they pretend to be from official organisations and they can be very convincing.


Your Bank will never ask for information such as your pin number or passwords

The Police will never ask you to transfer or withdraw money

If you see any suspicious behaviour, please report it to the police
