Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Hello resident,
                      please see attached 2 more scams.  Information supplied by Halton Trading Standards.

Banking Scam emails
Halton Trading Standards received two scam emails purporting to be from both TSB and Santander banks. Both emails are suspiciously similar, they state how they have had to block or limit access to the recipient’s bank accounts for security reasons. They then ask the recipient to confirm their bank details by clicking on the link embedded in the emails. This is a scam used to obtain your bank and personal details. It if foreseeable you could receive emails such as this, but with other banks names and logos used instead of TSB and Santander.

Cervical screening text messaging scam
Halton Trading Standards have been made aware of scam regarding cervical screening. Some women are being contacted by text message, claiming to be from the call and recall service to advise they are overdue for screening. The message asks them to call a mobile number and provide personal details. These messages are not from the NHS Cervical Screening Programme.
If you or somebody you know has been caught out by a scam or fraud please contact one of Halton Trading Standards specialist officers, Linda or Sue on 0151 511 8785 or 0151 511 8775, who are already working with people in Halton who have lost thousands of pounds to scams.

Hope this is of use?
