How Hull phone scam victim had close call

Seventeen victims lost nearly £40,000 to a nine-strong gang of phone scammers jailed at Hull Crown Court.

The fraudsters travelled from Birmingham and London to Hull and East Yorkshire to carry out the scam over four days between 2 and 5 June 2015.

Beryl recalls how she was called by a "policeman" and advised to empty her bank account. She did not lose any money but was left shaken by the experience.
