Police warn of phone scam
POLICE are warning people to be vigilant after reports of a telephone scam.
Several people have contacted police after receiving calls requesting their bank details.
The scammers, who have the name, date of birth and address of the recipient, claimed they were entitled to a refund from their banks before asking for their details.
When they refused to give the details, the caller threatened to black list their account.
A police spokesman said: “I would urge people to remain vigilant and never disclose personal information such as bank account details over the phone.
