Police Fraud Newsletter
SUSSEX POLICE FRAUD NEWSLETTER _ FEBRUARY
This month, they identify ‘Phantom Debt’, a fraud which involves being cold-called by someone claiming to be a debt collector, bailiff or other type of enforcement agent. The fraudster may suggest they are recovering funds for a non-existent debt. They may request payment, sometimes by bank transfer and if refused, they threaten to visit homes in order to recover the supposed debt that is owed. In some cases, the victim is also threatened with arrest.
As always, they encourage everyone to be vigilant and warn others who may be vulnerable to any type of fraud.
