Courier Fraud

Courier Fraud

COURIER FRAUD – DO YOU HAVE AN ELDERLY NEIGHBOUR OR RELATIVE?

We are warning people to be wary of courier fraud as there has been an unusually high number of incidents relating to this crime being reported in the Lutterworth and Broughton Astley areas and surrounding villages in recent weeks. Fraudsters typically target older people by exploiting their trust in the police and their bank.

What is courier fraud? More »

Courier fraud is where fraudsters call someone pretending to be a police officer or bank official, warning that there are corrupt bank staff intent on stealing their money, and as for their help to solve the problem. Typically, the caller then tells the victim to withdraw a sum of money and a courier is sent to collect it.

What to do if you receive a call?

If you receive a call of this type, put the phone down and report the incident to Leicestershire Police (using 101) using another telephone as on some occasions the call can remain connected.

Please remember that:

The police or your bank will NEVER contact you to:

  • Ask for your PIN or bank details
  • Ask you to withdraw cash to hand over to them for safekeeping
  • Ask you to transfer money out of your account for fraud reasons
  • Send someone to our home to collect cash PINS or cards
  • Ask you to transfer money to another account.

Just because someone knows a few basic details about you such as your name and address, it does not mean that they are genuine. If someone calls you asking you to withdraw large amounts of cash before handing it over to a courier… IT'S A SCAM!

There is a lot of information about Courier Fraud on the internet and many warnings have been issued in the last few months. However, we know that not everyone accesses social media or the internet, so we are asking the public to help us by informing their neighbours or relatives about these offences.

Please share this information.
