Scam call scheme warning to Sedgemoor households
8:30pm Friday 16th August 2013 in Bridgwater Area News
PEOPLE in Sedgemoor are being warned of a scam call scheme.
A Mercury reader from Bower Manor received a call from someone claiming to be from her bank, HSBC, asking her for her account details.
The person said the bank had been overcharging people who had overdrawn from their accounts. He asked for her card number to ‘clarify he was speaking to the right person’ so he could transfer the ‘substantial sum’ she was owed.
After refusing to give her details she called the real HSBC and the bank confirmed it would never ask for those details by phone.
