A man has rung two victims claiming to be from their bank either asking which account they have and how much money they have in it, or they ask about a replacement bank card they claim should have been delivered to you.

The caller then says he will send someone round to deliver a new card. Either a couple of days or just half an hour later, a man arrives at the door asking for the victim’s bank card.

In one instance he left the victim with an envelope containing what looked like a Natwest bank card and took the victim’s card with him.

These criminals were both male, one Asian and one white. No bank will ever do this and members are advised to put the phone down and dial the police on 101 or in an emergency call 999 Please be aware of this fraud and share this information with as many people as possible – especially those who are more vulnerable. This scam is happening in Trafford NOW!
