Courier Fraud in Kent

Residents across Kent, in particular the East of the County have recently been targeted by Courier Fraudsters. The good news is that most realised that the caller is not the Police but a criminal. Therefore, it is important that we continue to share these alerts with family and friends.

Remember, the Police will never telephone and ask you to withdraw money from your Bank to be collected by a courier to assist in an investigation. Neither will they ask to collect your Bank Cards by a courier for the same reason.

If you think that you may have been a victim of this or any other type of scam, then contact your Bank immediately, which you can do by calling 159 and report it to Action Fraud at www.actionfraud.police.uk or call 0300 123 2040
