Beware of Fraudsters
Written by Hitmix Local News on 13 April 2021
Two people in Staffordshire have been conned out of 26 thousand pounds by fraudsters claiming to be from their bank.
The individuals, who aren’t known to each other, were each called at 5pm on Saturday by someone saying they were from Santander.
Police say the caller says that the individuals’ account had been compromised and advises them to send funds through an alleged secure system for safe-keeping.
However, the call is a scam and once money is sent, it can’t be retrieved.
