Public Urged To Be Vigilant Following Recent Reports of Fraud in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire
Officers in the North East are again urging members of the public to be vigilant after two recent reports of telephone scams where the victims have collectively lost in the region of £35,000.
On both occasions the victims were called by a man who identified himself as being from their bankís fraud team.
He then went on to say that there had been fraudulent activity on their accounts and asked his victims to transfer money either online or by attending at their bank.
The most recent incidents reported have happened in the Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire areas.
Inspector Matt Smith said:
"Sadly we know from experience how completely devastating these types of crimes can be. In just a few minutes a fraudster can obliterate someoneís life savings with no regard for the consequences.
