POLICE are warning residents about a scam where fraudsters con people to obtain their bank account details and debit cards.

Derbyshire Police revealed that a fraudster has been calling victims and pretending to work for the bank they have an account with, telling the victim there has been fraudulent activity on their account across the area.

They ask the victim for their PIN and then tell them a courier will be sent to the house of the victim to collect their debit cards.

They encourage the victim to ring their bank to clarify the call is genuine but do not hang up, leaving the phone line open.

When the victim believes they are dialling their bank, they are actually speaking to another fraudster on the same line, who then confirms the fraudulent transactions.
