Police appeal after credit card fraud
POLICE are appealing for information regarding an incident of credit card fraud.
At about 1pm on Tuesday, October 1 the victim was at work in an office in Salisbury City Centre, received a call from a man purporting to be from her bank.
The man informed her that her credit card had been stolen and that police would be in contact. He asked for her pin number which she provided.Her purse had been stolen from the staff area.
She cancelled her card but was informed that £500 had already been withdrawn from her account.
PC Lisa Lovatt said: “These offenders can sound very plausible but it is important that people are aware that bank and building societies will never ask for your pin.
"Never give your pin to anyone else or keep a note of it in your handbag/purse as it is very easy for someone to fraudulently use it to withdraw your cash.”
Police have released a CCTV image of a man they would like to talk to in connection with the incident.Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Lovatt of Salisbury Police on 101 or Crimestoppers 0800 555111.
