Telephone Scammers Caught By Police Recording

The following is a recording of a real life telephone scam, the intended victim was the mother of a Dorset Fire & Rescue Officer who became suspicious when she was asked to hang up and phone 999 (A number reserved only for emergencies and not used verify banking!) However in the heat of the moment it is perfectly likely many people would simply think of it as calling the police, regardless of the number, and when they've had the validity confirmed give away any information the scammers require! Be sure to watch the video and see how it's done so you can make sure you and youe loved ones never fall victim to this trick.
