Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Good Morning ,

We have had a number of reports of persons calling victims impersonating police officers. The offenders have been asking the victims to assist with a covert investigation to catch corrupt banking staff.

Victims are asked to attend their local branch and withdraw a sum of up to £20,000. They are told to tell bank staff that this is for home improvements, Loved ones etc.

The victim then returns home and the cash is collected by a courier fraudster, Who are never seen AGAIN !

THIS IS A SCAM . Cheshire police would never ask anyone to withdraw money as part of a covert investigation. Please be vigilant and report any suspicious behaviour/ attempted scams on 101/ 999 if person is present.

For information regarding scams please visit

Kind regards

PCSO Nichola Devey
