Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Hi All,

We have had an incident recently where by somebody has phoned a local resident claiming to be from BT internet. They have requested money from the resident to fix their problem with the resident's broadband.

Please be aware this is a scam designed to extract money from yourself and this is not how providers operate.

Please be mindful when receiving such calls and do not give out any personal details or sensitive information to these callers.

Do report it to ourselves on 101 or contact Action Fraud either online at  or ring them on 0300 123 2040

Kind Regards
