Impersonation Fraud Awareness

The Economic Crime Unit at Lancashire Police would like to make you aware of a video in relation to Impersonation Fraud.

Impersonation Fraud is when a fraudster contacts a victim impersonating professional people such as The Police, HMRC or The Bank. The fraudster will then convince the victim that their money is under attack, or that they owe money and payment is needed. Victims will then send the money away, purchase items or go into a bank and withdraw the money and send to the fraudster via a courier, never to be seen again.

The Bank, The Police and HMRC will never contact you asking you to pay outstanding debt, or to withdraw money and send to a safe account. Please click on the link below or copy it into your web browser to watch the video which has been produced by The Metropolitan Police Service
