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.
