Information sent on behalf of Lincolnshire Police

Op Signature Alert
Lincolnshire Police would like to make you aware of fraud circulating in Lincolnshire at this time.
Police Impersonation Fraud
This offence involves victims being told to purchase high value goods or to withdraw large amounts of cash to hand over to a police officer who will visit their address to collect it at a later time.
The fraudsters allege the goods or the money are counterfeit items or that their bank account has been compromised and they need to transfer to money to a safe account or withdraw it for collection by a police Officer.
Please be aware that the Police would never ask anyone to do this.
You receive a call from a bogus officer stating you are under investigation and need to transfer or withdraw money from your account.
Safety Advisory Group
Call is made stating the person is owed money by their bank but need to make a payment to receive it direct.
We are asking people to make their elderly family members aware of these fraud methods and to raise as much awareness as possible.  If you have any elderly neighbours, consider printing off this alert and posting a copy through their door.
If you would like to report anything of this nature to authorities, please call us on 101 or report to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.
