Bank card scam targets Norfolk’s medical workers
NHS workers are being warned about a bank card scam which appears to be targeting medical offices in Norfolk.
Norfolk Constabulary is reminding people not to release bank details over the phone following several thefts from medical offices, followed by attempted phone deceptions.
Victims are finding that their cash cards are stolen and then they are later contacted by someone claiming to be from their bank, asking for their personal details, including their PIN number.
Inspector James Brown said: 'Banks will never ask for personal financial information over the phone. Avoid giving the caller any information and contact Norfolk Constabulary immediately.'
Police are advising people they should not disclose their pin number to anyone, to keep handbags and wallets somewhere secure, and that they should not write down their PIN number or keep it in their wallet, purse or handbag.
Anyone who thinks they may have been victim of this scam or has any information relating to the thefts and calls should contact Norfolk Constabulary on 0845 456 4567, in an emergency call 999.
