    This is an update to a previous alert sent from Action Fraud in November 2015:

    Fraudsters are setting up high specification websites advertising various electrical goods and domestic appliances. These goods are below market value and do not exist. The website will state you can pay via card; however when the purchaser goes to pay, this option is not available and the payment must be made via bank transfer.

    There has recently been a series of incidents whereby fraudsters either phone or attend the home address of elderly members of the public claiming to be police officers. The fake officer/s will claim that they are investigating a fraud which they believe the elderly person to be a victim of. The fake officer/s will then request the bank cards and personal identification numbers (PIN) of the victim and claim these are needed for investigation purposes. If first contact is made by a phone call, the fake officer/s will tell the victim that someone will be over to collect the evidence.
