Innlandet: Phone scammers are pretending to be police employees and asking for sensitive information

Innlandet: Phone scammers are pretending to be police employees and asking for sensitive information

Several people have been called from the police telephone number by scammers who pretend to be investigators and ask for sensitive information. “Report them,” the police ask.

The Innlandet Police District has recently received a number of inquiries from people about telephone fraud.

They emphasize that the police never ask for sensitive information over the phone. The fraud attempts have been registered all over the country.

“Everyone who receives such inquiries is encouraged to report the attempted fraud at the nearest police station,” Johan Martin Welhaven, head of the joint unit for prosecution in the Innlandet Police District, said.

It is difficult to say anything about the total scope of the scam because many cases have not been reported, according to Welhaven.

The police have the following advice for citizens:

* Never give away sensitive information such as the social security number, password, account number, or BankID over the phone. The police or other serious businesses actors will never ask for it via phone.

* Ask for the name, title, and place of employment of the caller. Feel free to ask for the person’s service number in the police.

* Make a note of the time of the conversation, and note the person’s dialect/language and the content of the conversation.

* Contact the nearest police station and report the matter.
