Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Hello resident,
                      below is information received from Halton Trading standards about a recent Scam.

Visa card telephone call scam
Halton Trading Standards wants to advise consumers about a Visa card scam currently circulating.
The scammer telephones the consumer stating they are from Visa and a £300 charge has been made against the consumer Visa Card just 15 minutes earlier.  
Halton Trading Standards believes the above is a scam. Consumers should be alert to any similar scenarios regarding unsolicited telephone calls and giving away their personal details.

Hope this is of use?
Many thanks
