Appeal after scam in Waterlooville

Alert message sent 28/11/2019 13:44:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary


We are appealing for information after an elderly couple fell victim to a fraud in Waterlooville.

Between noon and 12.30pm on Saturday 23 November, a man pretending to be from a well-known drainage company visited the couple at their home in Corbett Road.

He said there had been a drain blockage further down the road. On checking their drain, he informed them it was fine and they were entitled to a refund due to the inconvenience caused.

The man said the money could be paid straight into their account and asked for their bank card. This was placed into a card reader and they gave the man their PIN when requested.

It was not until the couple attended their bank on Monday 25 November that they were informed their account had been emptied.
