Fraudsters continue to imitate police

FCU says no bank would ask for personal details

Residents are warned not to take calls from fraudsters continuing to imitate Financial Crime Units in the Isle of Man and Jersey.

Calls have been circulating in both jurisdictions by individuals claiming to be investigating activity at Clydesdale Bank, Metro Bank and Halifax Bank.

They ask for payments to be made into a 'safe' account without stating reasons behind the transaction.

FCU Detective Sergeant John Mitchell advises anyone in receipt of the calls to refrain from giving out personal details.

He says 'no legitimate bank' will ever ask customers for details, or to transfer money.
