Elaborate Bank Scam with Police Imposters

Post by JGD »

Stay alert everyone - here is a report from Newsshopper on a very elaborate scam involving a Sydenham resident who, with others, was impersonating a police officer.

Be very aware of fake emails, fake phone calls, fake couriers and even fake police knocking on your door advising you that your bank details have been compromised and that you must transfer monies to other accounts. Do NOT agree to do it.
Sydenham man faces charges for 'posing as police as part of scam'
A Lewisham man is due to appear in court tomorrow on fraud charges, after allegedly pretending to be a police officer as part of a scam.

Kawsar Ahmed, 23, from the Sydenham Hill Estate in Lewisham will appear at Gloucester Crown Court on Friday (June 18).

Ahmed was charged alongside Mohammed Zaman Ahmed, 34, of Quex Road, Kilburn, with conspiracy to commit fraud by misrepresentation.

The charges are linked to an ongoing investigation where people are alleged to be purporting to be police officers in order to make a gain.

The fraud investigation, which is led by Gloucestershire Constabulary’s serious and organised crime unit, has links to numerous counties.
