FRAUD WARNING

See information/warning below from the police:

“Just to make you aware, and something you might want to put out.

On the 20th April an Adel pensioner received a phone call from an unknown man who managed to convince the gentleman, by way of fraud, to attend a local business in Adel and send over £2000 by Money Gram. Thankfully the staff at the business were concerned and contacted the Police before any money could be sent.

Please be aware and advise relatives, neighbours and friends to not give out any personal details over the telephone or agree to send money to any person for any reason, as genuine as it may sound.

Any such calls received should be reported to Action Fraud and the Police.”
