As reported by the BBC News article, dated 5 July 2014: Atherstone woman conned out of £100,000, scammers conned an 89-year old woman out of £100,000 by pretending to be bank officials, as well as police. As reported by the Warwickshire police, the woman, who is from Atherstone, told that she was notified by the supposed bank officials that that there was a problem with her bank, and that it was investigated by police officers, which were fake. As results, she transferred money onto another account, hoping this would solve the problem. The police department stated that the woman was deliberately targeted and warned the general public to be on the lookout for similar scams and schemes. The woman said that she was led to believe that she was talking to Metropolitan Police officers and staff members of the bank where she held her savings. Police have cautioned people to be on the lookout and check if of the callers are who they say they are, and to avoid any kind of action which involves transfer of their own money, or if they are asked to give out their credit card details.
