Police warn of possible phone scam


Police are reminding members of the public to be on the lookout for scams after suspicious calls over the weekend.

The new appeal comes after police received several complaints about possible fraudulent phone calls made on Saturday.

A police spokesman said that the calls came from 441-405-9999.

He added: “Callers stated that the person calling from that number claimed they were conducting a census and asked for personal information such as name and date of birth.

“Calling the number back results in an automated message stating that your call cannot be completed as dialled.”

The spokesman said that anyone who received a similar call from that number or another should ignore the calls and report them to the Financial Crime Unit on 247-1757 or via e-mail at fraud2@bps.bm.
