Alert message sent 17/05/2019 15:00:00

Information sent on behalf of Notts Police


Residents in Broxtowe North are being warned over scam phone calls from people claiming to be from BT.
 
A number of residents in Nuthall are reporting suspicious telephone calls from people saying that they are from BT and that their lines will be cut off if they don't agree to go through to one of their extensions.
 
BT states on its website that “Fraudsters are known to make calls claiming to work for BT, when it's actually a scam. They may ask you for personal information, want access to your computer and in some cases, ask for your bank details.
"Don't be fooled, this is fraud. We take these cases very seriously. So please let us know if you've been the victim of a scam call so we can work to stop fraudsters in their tracks.”
 
Please be on your guard and do not press any numbers that will connect you to these scammers.
