Dorset Police are reminding residents to remain vigilant as scam telephone calls continue across the county.
Telephone calls have been received from a person pretending to be a detective from the Metropolitan Police.
They then tell the caller that a person known to them is in custody, who has their bank details or has taken money from their accounts.
Luckily, recent victims of the calls have notified police but other people have been conned out of thousands of pounds.
Dorset Police are asking people to let them know if they do get any suspicious phone calls.
