Five people in Northamptonshire have reported receiving suspicious calls this afternoon from someone pretending to be a police officer.

Police have issued an instant warning to the public following the spate of suspicious calls just this afternoon.

The fraudster has been telling people on the other end of the phone that police have someone in custody who has been using their bank details.

A spokesman for Northamptonshire Police said: “The caller then asks the person to confirm their bank details, so that they can check if any transactions have been made on their account.

Anyone who receives one of these calls is asked to never give out their details and ask for the caller’s name and number.”
