Courier Fraud warning from Essex Police

Unfortunately, the Police have seen a number of "Courier Fraud" offences across the County where elderly victims are contacted by people claiming to be their bank who trick the victim into disclosing their pin, and then they arrange a visit by a "courier" to collect or swap their bank cards which are used to withdraw their money.

The Police are requesting your assistance in sharing this poster across your networks in order to it reach as many vulnerable people as possible.
