Police Warning on Scam Calls.

A local resident recently received a call claiming to be from Amazon stating that a payment request had been made on their account from a company in London and were they aware of any such transaction?. Clearly not aware, the caller stated they must have been hacked and went through a lengthy procedure at the end of which the member checked their online bank account to find a substantial amount of money had been removed.

Other locals have received calls from DPD asking for details to enable them to make a delivery.

Please NEVER give out any personal details to anyone claiming to be from Amazon or any other company that calls you out of the blue.

Terminate the call and call back on a number you trust and preferably from a different phone, if this is not possible then wait at least 5 minutes for the line to disconnect.
