Warning over fake Action Fraud officials operating telephone scam in Lincolnshire
POLICE have received reports from people who have been contacted by fraudsters claiming to be from Action Fraud.
Conmen frequently impersonate officials in an attempt to convince people that their offer is genuine and police are aware of a recent scam where fraudsters impersonate an Action Fraud representative to trick people into sending money.
The caller states that they are from Action Fraud and that the person they are calling is entitled to compensation from a recent incident. The scammer then asks for money to be sent via a Ukash voucher in order to process the compensation claim. The amount asked for is usually in the range of £200 to £400.
Action Fraud is warning people not to pay these bogus telephone callers.
