We are urging our communities to be vigilant about a scam calls throughout South Wales.
Over the last few days, a number of scam calls have reported to us across our force area of fraudsters claiming to be serving police officers from Scotland Yard and other forces.
Victims have asked to provide banking information, personal data and arrange to meet up at a specified location to exchange money.
South Wales Police is investigating these reports and working with partner agencies to bring justice to those affected by these crimes.
Communities across South Wales are reminded:

Chief Superintendent Andrew Valentine said:
“Receiving reports of individuals claiming to be serving Police Officers is worrying.
“Serving Police Officers will never approach or contact a member of the public for money. Our role is to keep our communities safe and protect the vulnerable.
“South Wales Police has a dedicated operation to combat this type of crime. Operation Signature exists to co-ordinate investigations and engagement with finance institutions among other partners and we remain grateful to them for their continuing support in alerting us early as to their suspicions also.
“Remember the police will never contact you asking for money. If you receive a scam call, hang up as soon as possible and report to us by calling 101 or 999 in an emergency”.
