Phone fraudsters targeting homes across South Yorkshire

Residents across South Yorkshire are being targeted by fraudsters phoning homes and attempting to persuade people to give out financial details.

Police officers said they had received numerous reports from would-be victims who said the callers claimed to be police officers.

A spokesman for South Yorkshire Police said people should never give their bank or credit card details.

Anyone targeted by the fraudsters should contact the police.
