Lothian and Borders police are warning people in the Scottish Borders of an ongoing Sky TV scam after a woman was targeted on Thursday.
The public are being asked to remain vigilant after a number of residents have been contacted by people claiming to be from Sky.
Customers are being told they are entitled to a refund and to claim these refunds, they're being sent a pin machine and asked to enter their pin.
A 76-year-old man, from Earlston, entered his pin on a number of occasions- resulting in a four-figure some of cash being taken from his account.
Similar incidents have occurred across the region and police are now urging anyone who has received a pin-reading device to contact them immediately.
