Lancashire residents have been targeted by a banking scam. A text is initially received requesting that a number is contacted urgently. The scammer claims to be from the National Anti-Fraud Unit, gives a London address, and appears to have access to potential victims’ phone numbers and some banking details.

On making contact, the scammer advises they believe your bank account has been compromised, and not to mention the conversation to anyone as they were trying to draw out a criminal. You will be instructed to withdraw cash and send it in a padded envelope via special delivery at a Post Office to a London address.
