North Yorkshire Police is making residents aware of a new scam that is circulating around the county.

Officers say they have had reports of fraudsters pretending to be from a bank or local police.

The scammers are using a software to make their phone number appear as a legitimate one from the company or authority.

The force said:

"Please remember, your bank or the police will NEVER call and ask you to move money or pay fines over the phone.

If you're in any doubt about who is calling you, hang up immediately and if at all possible, use a different phone to ring back.
