Telephone Scams

Police would again like to remind members of the public to be on their guard to telephone scams. Last week an elderly local resident reported receiving a call from a withheld number claiming to be from the Police and looking for Sponsorship for an Anti Drugs Initiative at a local school. Thankfully the resident was suspicious and ended the call as this was not a genuine call and would have likely been an attempt to obtain bank account details.

Sergeant Iain MacNicol of Lochgilphead Police Station said

“Unfortunately Telephone Scams are all too common now and the public should be very wary of any unexpected calls, particularly where they are being asked for Bank or other personal details. If there is any doubt, just end the call and don’t give out personal information over the phone.”

Appeal for witnesses and information

If any member of the public has information in relation to the above, or to any incident, they can contact their local police office on telephone number 101, or anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
