The Police on Wednesday appealed to the public to be cautious of scam and deceitful phone calls.

In a statement, the police said that these fraudulent calls are being made using ‘local’ (spoofed) numbers, pretending to be from police stations. The caller asks for personal and/or banking details.

The police said that if one receives these calls, they should not provide any personal details and, if in doubt, should contact the entity directly through official numbers.
