Warning about Fraud incidents.

North Yorkshire Police are noticing a rise in incidents of fraud where the victim is asked to pay an outstanding debt by means of i-tunes vouchers. The voucher numbers are then provided to the fraudster as means of payment. As a result Action Fraud is launching an awareness raising campaign.

Please be aware, fraudsters will often use intimidation tactics to persuade the victim into paying the debt. Remember HMRC or similar organisations will never ask for payment in i-tune vouchers
