Bank tele­phone scam warn­ing

Po­lice Scot­land has been made aware that some mem­bers of the public have re­cently re­ceived tele­phone calls from peo­ple claim­ing to rep­re­sent their bank and at­tempt­ing to ob­tain bank­ing de­tails over the phone.

Po­lice would like to re­mind the public never to give out such in­for­ma­tion over the phone and al­ways check any such call is gen­uine by call­ing their bank them­selves.

Al­ways make sure you hear a clear di­alling tone be­fore call­ing your bank in case a fraud­u­lent caller has kept the line open.

Po­lice also sug­gest call­ing a friend first to con­firm the call is not an­swered by the fraud­u­lent caller.

If any mem­ber of the public has in­for­ma­tion in re­la­tion to any of these in­ci­dent, they can con­tact their lo­cal Po­lice Sta­tion on tele­phone num­ber 101, or anony­mously through Crimestop­pers on 0800 555 111.
