Warning over scam telephone calls

Police in Warwickshire have urged people to be careful about who they give their credit card details to after a series of telephone frauds.

Officers said there had been a number of cases where a man claiming to be from British Telecom said there was a problem with direct debit payments.

He asked the householders to provide their card details to prevent their phone lines being cut off.

The card holders later found their accounts had been raided.
