Fraudsters posing as Action Fraud!
Recently the fraudsters have been posing as an anti-fraud campaign called Action Fraud. They have been trying to gain access to victims bank accounts. Victims that have already been affected by fraud.
There has been an email using the City of London Police logo, which has been sent round the victims offering money from the Fraud Intelligence Unit. The email also says that the South African Reserve Bank and HSBC have been selected to look at the compensation claims.
This is what is known as recovery fraud, this attack targets people who have already been victims of fraud and promises compensation for what they have lost. The criminals behind these attacks then try to acquire personal and confidential information, so they can defraud them for a second time. Also in some cases the fraudsters will request money from the victims, to help speed up the release of the money they have been promised.
