First published in News

POLICE are warning people in West Mercia to be vigilant about a scam in which callers claiming to be bank officials or officers from the Metropolitan Police ring residents, claiming there is a problem with their account and telling them they need to transfer their money to another account.

Scammers recently tricked an 89-year-old woman from Warwickshire tricked into transferring nearly £100,000 from her bank account.

Any suspicious calls can be reported to police on 101.
