Pensioners are being duped out of their money by scammers posing as police officers.

Nottinghamshire Police have issued a warning after two pensioners received phone calls telling them to transfer their money into a ‘safe account’ because criminals are looking at stealing it.

Victims were told not to reveal to their bank why they were transferring the money, as it would jeopardise covert police work.
