Scam letter alert
The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) has issued an alert after a member of the public received a scam letter accusing them of money laundering.
The scam letter, which fraudulently stated it was from the NFIB, requested that the recipient pay £7,000 into a bank account. The letter also said the recipient would be arrested if they failed to make the payment.
The NFIB stresses that this is a scam letter and, should you receive such a letter, requests that you report it to Action Fraud, the UK’s national fraud reporting centre by calling 0300 123 20 40 or by visiting www.actionfraud.police.uk.
