Police warning over speeding fine scam
Police have warned the public about a new online scam that claims the target was caught speeding.
A police spokesman said some members of the public have received a misleading e-mail that claims they had been caught on a speeding camera and have to pay a fine.
The spokesman said: “Such requests for money and/or personal information via unsolicited correspondence should be ignored and any links contained in similar e-mails should not be clicked.
“The public is reminded that personal information such as dates of birth, addresses, phone numbers and banking details are valuable and that this information should never be passed over the internet – including social media – phone or by post to unknown persons.”
Members of the public can report suspected frauds to the Financial Crime Unit at 247-1757 or make a report online at https://portal.police.bm.
