Fraudster in Area

Police are appealing for information after reports of fraud locally, this is in the form of a banking scam whereby offenders have contacted the victims via the telephone and persuaded them to withdraw large sums of cash from their banks accounts. An unknown male of Asian appearance, wearing a baseball cap has then attended their home addresses to collect the cash. This male was seen in Natland around 16:00hrs on Monday 12th February and 16:00hrs on Tuesday 13th February.

Anyone who may have seen a male of this description or has any relevant information please contact me.

Police would like to remain residents to remain vigilant to telephone scams. The Police or banks will never contact people and ask them for money.
