There has been a recent rise in courier fraud. This month’s Keep your Money Safe looks at a couple of cases where victims suffered substantial financial losses. Elderly people get a phone call claiming to be from their bank advising they need to return their bank cards. They then send a ‘courier’ to collect the cards and or cash from the victim’ home address.
Where the victim has not cancelled the cards, attempts and withdrawals have been made using the card. In some cases the victims have also provided their PINs to the courier.
