Telephone scammers posing as police

By on February 18, 2014

Recently we had two incidents reported to police,  one in Knutsford and one in Wilmslow, whereby calls were received from a male purporting to be a detective from Leeds Police.

The purpose of his call was to advise them that a male had been detained by the police who was in possession of their credit card details.When the recipients became suspicious the male advised them to ring 901 and gave them a reference number of 329AC

Yesterday, a report came into police that a female in the Knutsford area had fallen for this scam which resulted in £2000 being taken from her bank account. Please warn neighbours especially the elderly regarding this incident.

If you receive such a call put the phone down and contact police on 101
