Warning goes out to Cornwall about 'Brexit fraud'

Warning goes out to Cornwall about 'Brexit fraud'

Published by Sarah Yeoman at 2:37pm 21st November 2019.

Police in Cornwall have issued a warning about so-called 'Brexit fraud'.

Officers from Camborne, Pool and Redruth have put a warning on Facebook about scammers.

Fraudsters are reportedly calling people and claiming to be from a 'Brexit team'.

They then try to get your bank details to arrange payments for things such as medication.

Anyone who receives such a call is being urged to hang up and report it to the police

"Don’t get caught out by Brexit scammers.

"If someone unexpectedly phones you claiming to be from a ‘Brexit team’, before asking for bank details to arrange advance payments for medications or other items, don’t be fooled. 

"Hang up and make enquiries in your own time to check they are who they say.

"Please report any suspicious incidents to Devon & Cornwall Police online here or by email to or by calling 101."

Camborne, Pool and Redruth Police
