There have been several phone scams throughout Lincolnshire during the past week or so. The callers are purporting to be from the Police (often the Metropolitan Police) and after advising that a fraud has taken place, the caller is asking the victim to move money from their own account into another account nominated by the fraudster. Further details regarding these type of crimes can be obtained from the Lincolnshire Police website at www.lincs.police.uk PLEASE REMEMBER THAT A GENUINE POLICE OFFICER WILL NEVER ASK YOU TO TRANSFER MONEY NOR WILL THEY CALL YOU IN SUCH CIRCUMSTANCES. PLEASE ALSO REMEMBER THAT YOU SHOULD NEVER GIVE OUT PERSONAL DETAILS (INCLUDING YOUR ACCOUNT AND PIN NUMBER) TO ANYONE EVEN IF THEY CLAIM TO BE FROM YOUR BANK OR THE POLICE AS NEITHER ORGANISATION WOULD ASK YOU FOR SUCH INFORMATIONĀ
