Telephone Fraud - Lifeline Alarm

Alert message sent 10/01/2019 14:08:00

Information sent on behalf of Lincolnshire Police

Message from Lincolnshire Police Headquarters, Engagement Team, Thursday, 10 January 2019.

We have received a report of telephone fraud relating to the use of a lifeline alarm. An elderly Lincolnshire resident received a telephone call whereby a suspect claimed that their payment details had expired and that the victim needed to provide their card details again.
Please be aware that this is fraud – a legitimate organisation would never demand payment over the phone in this nature. Do not provide personal or bank details over the telephone. If you are unsure, then end the call immediately.  For police support please call 101. For enquiries regarding your lifeline alarm please contact your local council directly.
