Police repeat warning of scam artists

Members of the public have been reminded, yet again, to remain vigilant regarding phone calls, e-mails and other correspondence from unknown individuals that attempt to obtain personal information or other sensitive data.

The warning from Police follows a recent report of a call originating from Barbados with the unknown caller offering to help the recipient with alleged glitches affecting their home computer. Police warn that similar unsolicited correspondence should be ignored.

“Residents are advised that personal information regarding accessing their home computer(s) is valuable and that this information should never be relayed over the internet or phone to unknown persons,” a police spokesman said.

Any incidents of suspected internet fraud should be reported to the Financial Crime Unit on 247-1757 or via the e-mail address fraud2@bps.bm
