Timeline PhotosWarning following recent scams in Argyll areaA number of different types of fraud have been reported to us recently, including via phone. These can advise that your account has been compromised and request either, immediate transfer of funds into an account scammers provide you, or withdrawal of money from your account and physical posting of this money to a detailed address. In September 2021, an 82-year-old woman in Oban was contacted by phone by a person claiming to be from her bank. She was asked to withdraw large sums of money and send it via ‘special delivery’ as part of an investigation into bank staff who may have been defrauding her account. The woman was told by the caller if questioned by bank staff to state the reason was a family purchase. This is a scam. No bank will ever ask you to withdraw cash from your account and send on. Earlier this week (Tuesday, 12 October, 2021), a resident in Campbeltown received a phone call from a person claiming to be from her bank, requesting they attend the bank to collect £17,000 in cash, before then meeting with a police officer to hand over the money. This is a scam. No police officer or member of police staff will ever ask for money nor will they ask for personal financial information out with a full police investigation.In August 2021 we received a report of a romance fraud, where a person gains the trust of a victim through social media or a dating app and slowly seeks to draw money out of them after securing a romantic connection. A 49-year-old woman in Lochgilphead reported sending over £23,000 to an unknown person met via a dating app. The fraudster continually requested transfers of money, along with valuable items as gifts. This is a scam. Do not send any money to people you have not met in person. Discuss any requests of this nature with friends and family, or with police, to help test check what is taking place and ensure someone is not manipulating you. ... See MoreSee Less

We could really do with your help. Can you give us one hour of your week to help with shopping for older people. We have loads of volunteering opportunities but meeting us at the local stores and popping in to do someone's shopping would make all the difference.
