Postal Scam

Humberside Police have asked that this information be shared.
Between 25 July 18 -14 August 18 there have been 7 police incidents in the Cottingham Willerby and Beverley area of a SCAM targeting elderly persons

A MALE DRESSED IN A RED POST OFFICE T SHIRT, BLACK SHORTS AND SHOES.

THIS MALE  IS BELIEVED TO BE A BOGUS POST MAN,

THE MALE SAYS HE HAS  A PARCEL FOR THIS ADDRESS ( THE PERSONS NAME IS ON THE PARCEL) AND THERE IS AN OUTSTANDING .68P TO BE PAID FOR IT.  IF THE HOUSE OWNER STATES THEY WILL PAY BY CASH THE BOGUS PERSON SAYS HE CAN ONLY ACCEPT A CARD. THE MALE PRODUCED A CARD READER.
ONCE THE BOGUS MALE HAS THE CARD HE TELLS THE HOUSE OWNER IT DID NOT WORK AS THE SIGNAL WAS NO GOOD.

THE MALE STATES HE IS GOING TO GO ROUND THE CORNER SO THAT IT WOULD WORK.  NOW THE MALE HAS THE BANK CARD/DETAILS,. ONCE AROUND THE CORNER HE JOINS ANOTHER MALE IN A VEHICLE WAITING IN A  BLACK LAND ROVER FREELANDER 1997 – 2006 MODEL.  THEY THEN DRIVE OFF AND GO TO A VERY CLOSE ATM NEARBY AND WITHDRAWN £200 AND £50.

THE SAME SCAM IS THEN REPEATED IN THE SAME AREA, THEN THEY MOVE ON AND TURN UP A FEW DAYS LATER AND REPEAT THE SCAM

IF ANY ONE BECOMES SUSPICIOUS OR CAN GET THE REGISTRATION OF THE BLACK CAR, PHONE POLICE 999.”
