“A police officer, or any other official, will never ask for money or bank details over the phone or on the door-step. If you are unsure if the person is who they say they are, ask for ID and check the information with the organisation they say they work for. However never use a number they give you. Always look it up yourself. In short, if you are unsure, again shut the door.”
