Bank tele­phone scam warn­ing

Po­lice have been made aware of an­other bank fraud at­tempt via tele­phone.

On Mon­day Oc­to­ber 15, an el­derly woman in Oban re­ceived a call from a man with a Scot­tish ac­cent say­ing he was from her bank fraud team in Ed­in­burgh. The man said some­one was try­ing to take money from her ac­count.

The woman was ad­vised to go to her bank and trans­fer £5,000 of her money to a Nat West Bank ac­count.

The woman was fur­ther told not to men­tion this to the bank staff as they were be­lieved to be in­volved in the fraud.

The woman went to the bank but staff re­alised this was a scam and called po­lice so no money was trans­ferred.

Sergeant Chris Ed­wards, of the Oban Com­mu­nity Polic­ing Team, said: ‘We’re aware of re­cent tele­phone scams in Ar­gyll and warn lo­cal res­i­dents to re­main vig­i­lant of fur­ther calls.

‘These calls are from peo­ple claim­ing to rep­re­sent their bank and at­tempt to ob­tain in­ter­net bank­ing de­tails over the phone. They also try to get peo­ple to at­tend in per­son to their bank to trans­fer money to an­other ac­count.

‘A bank will never ask for your pass­word over the phone, no mat­ter how much de­tail they say they have about you or your ac­counts, nor will they ask you to trans­fer money.

‘If you do re­ceive a phone call ask­ing for these de­tails or telling you about sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity on your ac­count, call into your lo­cal branch or phone your bank us­ing a dif­fer­ent tele­phone.

‘Al­ter­na­tively, wait un­til you have heard a di­alling tone be­fore phon­ing your bank – some fraud­u­lent call­ers keep the line open and you could end up call­ing them back. If you have any con­cerns, go into your branch, con­tact trad­ing stan­dards or speak to a po­lice of­fi­cer.
