If you receive one of these calls hang up immediately and ensure you do not pass any details during the phone call.


Contact your bank directly, using the customer service number on the back of your bank card to report the call. If possible use a different phone than the one you received the call on. If that is not possible ensure that you hear the dial tone before you make any outgoing calls.


Once you have contacted your bank please use one of the following methods to contact Derbyshire police:


Officers are asking people to make friends, family and colleagues know about the calls and ensure they are aware of safety advice.
