Warwickshire Trading Standards Bulletin

Beware of fraudsters falsely claiming to be calling from Sky! A Warwickshire resident received a phone call which she believed was genuine because she had very recently cancelled her Sky subscription.

She told the caller this and then a few moments later received another phone call asking her to confirm her payment details relating to the account. She did and shortly afterwards someone made a withdrawal of £200 from her account.

Fortunately her bank were able to recover the money.

NEVER give any personal or financial information to people who call you on the phone, no matter who they claim to be.
