County Durham rogue caller warning after £1,500 loss

Police are warning people living in County Durham to be aware of rogue callers. Older people have been targeted by people posing as police officers or bank workers. The caller has claimed to be a detective investigating fraudulent activity - then asking for bank details. One person was duped into handing over £1,500.

“Yesterday an elderly Durham resident was convinced enough to withdraw and part with over £1,500 cash which was collected by a ‘courier’.

This type of criminal preys on the most vulnerable members of our community and once the victim realise what has happened they often feel too embarrassed to confide in their relatives."

– Acting Inspector Kay Howarth from Durham Neighbourhood Team
