Poster on fraud from Kent Police advising Police will never ask for your bank details or pin - this will be a scam

Have you been asked to withdraw cash by the police?

This is a scam.

The police or your bank will never:

  • ask for your bank details or PIN
  • ask you to transfer or withdraw and handover sums of money
  • send a curier to collect your bank cards, cash or PIN

If you are unsure about a call or visitor you have received:

  • Don’t give out any perconal or financial information.
  • Hang up or close your front door to check the caller’s identity.
  • If they phoned you, wait 10 minutes before you use the phone again (or use a different telephone) in case they stay on the line.
  • Contact their company yourself or dial 101 for the police – do not call a number they have provided.
  • Report suspcious activity straight away.
