Good afternoon Bob Ayer,

We would like to make you aware of the latest telephone scam. Offenders are making contact over the telephone, claiming to be Police Officers investigating fraud allegations. They ask the victims to withdraw money from their bank account for them to collect.

Two residents from the Bordon area received phone calls of this nature last week. To read more about this, please follow the link below. http://www.hampshire.police.uk/internet/news-and-appeals/2017/february/250217-telephone-scam-alert-44170070755.

If you receive any calls similar to this, then hang up - it's a scam.
