There is a story on local radio this morning about a taxi driver who received a booking to pick up an 80 year old woman and take her to her bank.
On the way she told him she had been contacted by the police who told her she had to transfer her all her money to a different account because her account had been compromised.
On arriving at the bank, instead of just dropping her off and leaving, he parked up and went into the bank with her, explained the situation and that he thought this was a scam. The bank confirmed her account was fine and that it was a scam and telephoned the police.
The woman had been convinced the call from the "police" was genuine and almost lost her life savings.
