Crooks who phone victims in a bid to get their hands on bank details and cash cards are still targeting people living in Herts.

Police say the fraudsters, who pretend to be police officers or a bank worker, have changed the way they are operating and are now persuading people to withdraw cash and hand it over to a courier. They are also continuing to get victims to hand over their bank cards.

There have been more than 100 calls to police about suspicious phone calls across the county since the beginning of the year and several arrests have been made.

But county police are still working to raise awareness of the crime in the hope of preventing future offences. Officers have been spreading the message by working with taxi companies, meals on wheels and other partners.
