Warning about recent fraudsters re bank accounts

We have been made aware of scams where individuals have been phoned and told that the call is from your bank’s fraud department – they have suggested that people transfer all their money to another account to ‘protect’ it. THIS IS A SCAM. If you get such a call (however plausible it sounds) tell them that you will call your bank independently and hang up. These clever fraudsters have even pretended that they are calling from a number that is the same as your bank. Please be careful – a genuine bank wouldn’t ever make this sort of phone call to you.
