We are alerting residents to reports of scam callers attempting to obtain bank details and defraud sums of money. The callers claim to be from a "serious fraud unit".
The bogus calls have asked victims for account details and have attempted to coerce people into withdrawing sums of money from their bank accounts.
Gwent Police would like to emphasise that officers will not request money or ask for your financial details. Never give out your personal details unless you are entirely satisfied that it is for a genuine purpose.
We are investigating calls of this nature.
If anyone receives a call of like this; hang up and contact 101 or report this to Action Fraud https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/ or 0300123 2040.
