A KIRBY woman has warned other residents after she was targeted by a scam caller.

Diane West, of Laburnum Crescent, Kirby Cross, received a phone call from a foreign man claiming she owed money and trying to take her details.

The caller had some basic details, including her name and address.

But when he would not reveal details of who Mrs West supposedly owed money to she became suspicious and put the phone down.

And she has warned others in the area not to fall for the fake call if they are targeted.

Mrs West said: “The caller said he was phoning on behalf of someone I owe money to.

“But he wouldn’t give any particulars and I know I don’t owe money to anyone.

“Some people don’t think and just give their details over automatically so they need to be careful if this is a scam going around the area."
