A resident has “had two automated phishing phone calls so far today from a bogus company called Visa Secure telling us that a £600 transaction has taken place on our account. The voice then asks you to press 1 to speak to an advisor. I waited and they hung up. I understand an elderly neighbour has had five such calls but was savvy enough to ignore.”
If you receive a similar telephone call, PUT THE PHONE DOWN, do not carry out any instructions that may be given.
PLEASE make sure your elderly neighbours are aware of this scam.
