Ross-on-Wye police have received reports in the past week of scam calls from people claiming to be police officers from London.

Scammers will ring-up and say that someone has tried using “your” card in London and then ask for your account details. Police warn that this is a scam.

Police will never send anyone to collect cards, cash, vouchers, or valuables; ask you to transfer money into another account. If someone calls, claiming to be from the police, asking for money or vouchers, stop and hang up. Non-emergencies can be reported via the West Mercia Police website.
