CRIME: Crime scene.
CRIME: Crime scene.

Police are advising the local business community around the Isle area to be aware of a fraud technique which is becoming used increasingly across the country.

Over the past 12 months reports have been received up and down the country of businesses being targeted by professional fraudsters who are capable of duping experienced members of small and medium sized businesses into passing on details of their online company bank accounts.

Whilst no incidents have been reported in the Humberside Police area specifically the advice is being issued as a precautionary measure.

Anyone who thinks they may have been approached by fraudsters using this technique is urged to contact Action Fraud using their online reporting tool at or by ringing 0300 123 2040.
