Bank Account Scam

Several residents living in the High Peak & Derbyshire Dales area have received phone calls from a man purporting to be from the bank, stating that there was a problem with their accounts and he would need to cancel their bank cards. He asked for their bank card numbers. An attempt was made take money from an account but the other residents declined and contacted their bank and the police.

These particular calls were made from a mobile phone with same number. Enquiries continue.

Police advise people not to divulge their bank account details to strangers. Your bank will have your details and wouldn’t phone you to ask for this information.
