Update from Thames Valley Police

Published: 28 January 2021

Thame Valley Police has received reports of scam calls, with callers pretending to be the police. They have issued the following advice:


  • Police officers and staff will never ask you to handover cash or your bank cards. 
  • If you are in doubt, call 101 and speak to the force the officer claims to work for. Call operators will be happy to check their identity and officers will be happy for you to confirm their legitimacy.
  • All police officers and staff are issued with unique warrant cards, which they will be happy to show you.
  • Report all scams to Action Fraud.
