Police Alert about Scammers Targeting the “Elderly”

I’m not sure why the Police think only the “elderly”, whatever that means, are vulnerable to this new scam.

Anyway, it’s worth knowing about as the thieves’ ingenuity is intriguing.

Apparently SCAMMERS pretend to be police officers in order to trick people into handing over their bank cards to a fake ‘courier’ . They are targeting the “elderly” in Birmingham.

Visit the Police Press Release for an interesting read. Do read it all – it’s worth it to learn what crime can easily be perpetrated these days.
