“Thousands of vulnerable people are becoming victims of these abhorrent phone scams. We must all do our bit to ensure that our nearest and dearest are aware of these phone scams and have the tools and knowledge available to them to help avoid falling prey to them " said Mr Ward.**
“I would urge those that have information on phone scams to contact Bradford police on the non-emergency number 101 or call 999 if the crime is in action”.**
