Public Urged To Be Vigilant Following Scams In Perth

Police in Perth are advising businesses to be alert to fraud scams following two recent incidents.

In January, a businesses was defrauded of just over £1000 after receiving an invoice from an email address that was similar to a genuine business they had dealt with previously.

In February, another business was defrauded of over £31,000 after receiving a phone call from an individual who claimed they were calling from the Bank of Scotland Fraud Squad and they needed to secure the account immediately due to an allegedly fraudulent pending payment.

PC John Morrison, from the Preventions and Interventions Team said: “Fraudsters can be very convincing and we are urging people to be aware of these types of scams.

“If you receive an unexpected phone call from someone claiming to be from your bank then always take the time to assess whether this is a genuine call or not. Ideally, you should call your bank back from a different telephone.

“Additionally, when receiving an email asking for money, check that the email address is accurate. Often, scammers will closely copy a genuine email address to make it appear as though their email is from a legitimate organisation.

“Do not feel pressured into providing information or making payments when receiving unsolicited emails or phone calls. If you have doubts about who you are speaking to, hang up and either call on a different phone number or visit the local branch.

“Our enquiries into these incidents are ongoing and we are advising anyone who may have been a victim of such scams to contact us. You can also find more information about how to spot the signs of a scam on the Action Fraud website.”

Doing it for yourself!

Our beloved pooches can’t managed to clean up after themselves so please remember to clean up after them.

However, if you’ve noticed someone’s been irresponsible, did you know you can contact the council  online or by telephone and report it to them?  The offence could land them in a big pile of trouble all their own to the tune of £80!  So let’s not do that folks,pick up after your pooch and keep the place nice for everyone and safe for the wee kiddlies.

Check our PKC’s page for more info.
