Scammers are at it again

Scam alert

Tista' taqra bil- Malti. is informed that members of the public have once again been receiving telephone calls as part of a scam with the aim of obtaining personal financial details from the public.

It seems that once again the scammers are using a foreign number, this time round with a German prefix, however one should be careful because there are times when the scammers use local numbers.

A few months ago the Police issued a warning about a similar scam which was asking people for their financial details with the scammers blaming their demand for information on a technical fault.

The Police said that no bank or financial institution asks for personal financial details over the phone, so one should be careful not to give it over this media.
