Police warning after pensioner scammed


Police in St Andrews are advising local residents to be on their guard after an elderly woman in the town was persuaded to give a bogus telephone caller her bank details.

This resulted in the fraudster removing several thousand pounds from her bank account.

The caller purported to be from the Microsoft company and claimed that her software licence had expired and been hacked.

He then asked for money to resolve the issue.
