Derbyshire Constabulary have launched an online video to raise awareness and offer advice on courier fraud following recent incidents across the county.

The online video gives the public an insight into the scam to see how fraudsters are calling members of the public to convince them to hand over their banks cards and PIN to a courier.

Detective Inspector Rob King, head of the Derbyshire Economic Crime Unit said: “We have been working alongside our partners to raise awareness of frauds and scams as part of our forcewide Stamp out Fraud campaign.

“Recently we have had an increase in reports of suspected courier fraud, but thankfully there are steps that we can all take to protect ourselves from the crime.

“This includes never giving out your card details, PIN or bank card to anyone and ending any suspicious calls immediately before reporting the incident.

“By spreading the message we can aim to stamp out fraud and protect more people from falling victim to the crime.”
