Police are warning about a potential computer scam to prevent people falling victim.
A Lancaster resident employed an online company to resolve their PC issues.
Someone purporting to be from the company called them requesting confirmation of previous payment details from them due to a change in name/details of the company.
A call was then received from the resident’s bank regarding suspicious activity on the account and a payment request for hundreds of pounds which had not been actioned by them.
At this time, it is not confirmed if this is as a result of a scam or bad/improper operating practice by the company involved.
Remember - never disclose banking/personal details to unsolicited callers.
