Next meeting

Thursday 1 August 7.00pm, Burn Chapel Schoolroom.




A Fraud Ambassador from North Yorkshire Police has recently appeared in the news section of That’s North Yorkshire TV speaking about the so called “Press 1” scams.
The news interview was to promote fraud awareness and to advise on how to combat it.

The fraudster may call you, out of the blue, then tell you something like “there is a warrant for your arrest/your internet is going to be cut off/there is a problem with your computer/you have a refund waiting/money is being withdrawn from your bank.

The fraudster will then tell you to “press 1.”
At this point, you will be transferred to another person, there may be a large connection fee for this, sometimes upwards of £5.
The call will then cost you, and their aim is to keep you talking for as long as possible, as the call may be costing you upwards of £3.60 per minute.
Should they then abstract personal information about you, there are further opportunities for them to defraud you using a different method.
How to beat the fraudster.
If you are called and you are told to “press 1” – hang up the phone.
Don’t attempt to call them back, don’t feel that by keeping them on the line you are costing them money, they use the money they take off others to fund their criminality.
Share this with your friends – Tell2 – Tell two people the information we give to you.
For up to date information, you can find us on Facebook – search for: North Yorkshire Police Fraud Awareness.
Alternatively, you can call 101 and ask for your local Fraud Ambassador to contact you.
