Telephone And Text Message Scams In Bridlington

Bridlington residents are being warned to look out for scams involving telephones and text messages.

Humberside Police said:

The community have recently become aware of a number of telephone and text message scams that are being attempted in an area.

One incident was in the form of a text message perpetrating to be from a mobile phone provider stating they were unable to process bills and in order to avoid fees the recipient needed to click on a link to update their billing information. 

Another incident involved a phone call perpetrating to come from a online store asking the recipient to log into their account as it had been hacked.

If you are in any doubt over the authenticity of the contact please do not respond in anyway and do not pass any personal or bank information. 

Advice would be to make a separate call to the company in question to report the suspicious contact and to check whether it was genuine or not.

If you suspect you have been a victim of fraud please contact police on 101 and visit the action fraud website to report the incident."
