Phone Scam Alert

Alert message sent 04/02/2019 14:34:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary


We have had report of a telephone scam. The call will usually be from a number that looks like a landline, when you answer it is an automated message stating that your WIFI is about to be disconnected. The message asks you to press 1 or 2.

Do not press any button if you receive one of these calls. Hang up and block the number or ask your telephone provider to do this for you.

Scammers are wanting you to follow their instructions to gain something from you, whether it is a call on a premium line or personal data, don't play into their hands.

For more information and where to report fraud visit Derbyshire Constabulary website.
