Detectives are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward after an elderly couple was targeted by fraudsters in Poole.
The victims were at their home in Guernsey Road on Tuesday night when they received a telephone call from a man claiming to be a police officer from Bournemouth and Poole Police – this police officer does not exist.
He told them that two men had been arrested and were in possession of their bank details. Believing they were speaking to a genuine police officer, bank cards and pin numbers were handed over to a courier during the duration of the call. An amount of cash has since been withdrawn.
