More reports of fraudulent telephone crimes in Dorchester

Dorset Police are reminding the Dorchester community to be alert to fraudulent telephone crimes, as more have been reported this week.

PCSO Mark Wodarek-Black said, “Unfortunately my shift today (Saturday 11 June) has involved visiting several victims of fraudulent telephone crimes, where local people have lost money to this type of scam”

“If you receive a call demanding money or providing a service if the offer sounds too good to be true it probably is! Just hang up, report to a family member, Action Fraud or the Police. You will never be criticised for taking advice about handing over your money.”

“One of the Scams today was from a person claiming they were from HMRC demanding payment or the victim will be arrested! This will NEVER happen but we understand this type of call can be alarming and very stressful.”

If you have been a victim of fraud or would just like further advice visit: www.actionfraud.police.uk or telephone 0300 123 2040 – Action Fraud is the UKs national reporting Centre for fraud and Cybercrime where you should report fraud if you have been scammed, defrauded or experienced cyber-crime in England, Wales and Northern Ireland

To contact Dorset Police call 101 for non-emergency calls. In an emergency please call 999.
