Credit/Debit Card Scams

Police are warning members of the public to make sure that they don't give their credit or debit card details out over the phone.

This follows two recent reports of scams in which people have been phoned by a man purporting to be from British Telecom.  The man claimed that there was a problem with the direct debit payments of their account and asked for credit or debit card details to prevent their phone being cut off.

The caller has then claimed that there was a problem with the card details given and requested details for another card.

In each instance, checks made by the members of the public, one from Lower Quinton and one from Wellesbourne, with BT have revealed that there had been no problems with the customer's direct debit payments and that the calls had been made fraudulently.
