Reports of 'UK Customs' scam targeting residents

Another scam is believed to be targeting residents, according to authorities.

The Northern Neighbourhood Policing Team says it's receiving reports about an automated call claiming a 'UK fraud case' has been opened in a potential target's name, and they must press '1' on their device to find out more details.

The bogus call says if the person doesn't, a warrant will be opened in their name.

As a result, Police are reminding anyone who gets a cold call like this to not press '1', simply hang up and raise awareness by sharing information about the scam with friends and family who aren't on social media.
