Speak to your close ones about ‘courier fraud’

Bedfordshire Police is supporting a national campaign targeting courier fraud. It is encouraging residents to speak to their elderly friends and family about spotting the signs of impersonation fraud.

A national campaign, co-ordinated by the City of London Police, will focus on educating potential victims on the different ways criminals con vulnerable and elderly people out of their money.

Courier fraud often starts with a cold call where the fraudster claims to be a police officer or a bank official.

The fraudsters will say there’s an issue with the victim’s bank account or request their assistance with an ongoing bank or police investigation.

The ultimate aim of this call is to trick the victim into handing over money or bank details.
