Telephone scam warning

Police have been made aware of recent attempted bank fraud by telephone in Argyll.

On Friday August 9, a woman in the Furnace area received a call from a man who said he was from her bank fraud team.

The woman was persuaded to log on to her internet banking account and transfer almost £20,000 to another account of which the caller gave her details as he said this would protect her money.

Sergeant Iain MacNicol, of the Lochgilphead community policing team, said: ‘We’re aware of many ongoing telephone scams occurring within the Argyll area and I would urge people not to trust unexpected callers who say they are from your bank.’
