Gloucestershire residents warned of debit card scam

Residents in Gloucestershire are being warned about a telephone scam in which a man has tried to access bank details.

Gloucestershire Police said a man in Hucclecote had reported receiving a phone call from a man claiming to be from the Santander Bank.

He asked for bank card numbers, stating that the bank owed the man money. When the card-owner refused, the caller attempted to guess the numbers.

The police said bank details should never be given to a cold caller.
