Caller scams

Information from the police

A genuine police officer would never contact a member of the public in this way and ask them to transfer cash.  

Anyone who receives such a call should put the phone down immediately and contact the police straightaway, preferably using another phone.

This is a scam affecting residents on a national level and involves fraudsters intercepting phone lines, holding open lines and posing as other police forces and bank authorities to con residents out of money.
