Scam

Alert message sent 09/11/2019 11:46:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary


Hello resident,
Message Warning: Amazon telephone call scam
Halton Trading Standards wants to advise consumers about an Amazon scam currently circulating.
The scammer telephones the consumer stating they are from Amazon and that money has mistakenly been taken from their account. The scammer then asks for the consumers bank details, so the money mistakenly taken can be refunded.
Halton Trading Standards believes the above is a scam. Consumers should be alert to any similar scenarios regarding unsolicited telephone calls and giving away their personal details.
 
If you or somebody you know has been caught out by a fraud please contact one of our specialist officers, Linda or Sue on 0151 511 8785 or 0151 511 8775, who are already working with people in Halton who have lost thousands of pounds to scams.
If you need advice on anything else please contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline  or 03454 04 05 06

Many thanks
Paul
