I just want to re- highlight a scam that is still going around in parts of Kent including West Kent.
Have you been asked to withdraw cash by the Police?
This is a SCAM - STOP!
The police or bank will NEVER:ask for your bank details or PIN.ask you to transfer or withdraw and handover sums of money.send a courier to collect your bank cards, cash or PIN.
If you are unsure about a call or visitor you have received:Don't give out any personal or financial information.Hang up or close your front door to check the caller's identity.If they phone you, wait 10 minutes before you use the phone again ( or better still use a different telephone if you can ) in case they stay on the line.Contact their company yourself or dial 101 for the police - do not call a number they have provided.Report suspicious activity straight away.
Lets get this message out to stop it happening to members of our community.
