As the title suggest's , have you ever had a fraudulent transaction take place on your debit or credit card and then you were contacted by the police ?

No but i have reported card fraud to my local station which had a fraud department.

Yes, and yes the second time it happened as they caught the people that were doing it.

Whoever calls you don't give them any details whatsoever!!!
I had bag stolen with keys and cards in and I had a call from so called "police" asking me to attend a crime support meeting at such a time.
Luckily I called back and it was a scam to get me out of house so they could get in with my keys!
Be careful and good luck

Did you keep your own telephone number in your bag?

Good advice especially when contacted by anybody asking for personal details (bank/debit/credit card issuer, mobile telephone contract provider, loan Company, and so on).

Just ask for their name, & the main switchboard number so you can call them back at a convenient time (as you do not want to provide your details to everybody else in earshot of the call either).

BFN,

Yes and no the police never contacted me. Luckily my bank did as they were the ones who noticed the fraudulent charge and stopped it right away.

Yes, they tried buying some Music equipment worth £500, Sat Navs worth £200 and a Bus ticket for £1.50 (lol). My bank stopped it as soon as the order was placed and phoned me straight away and asked if i had tried purchasing any of the above.

Would of been nice to know if the person was ever caught.

Tell that to Halifax!

They don't understand it when they call me on my mobile, and I won't go through their security questions.

Yes, but it was my cc company that contacted me. Apparently someone tried to buy ryanair flights and a hire a car.. I was quite surprised as it didn't sound the dodgiest in the world....

I check my bank a lot, and one day i noticed a transaction that had happened in the previous hour, so i called the bank an they would not help,they just kept saying it takes 3 days for a transaction to clear, maybe you bought something, blah blah and basically refused to do anything, but the girl slipped up and said it was carphone warehouse.
So as i was at work and close to town i went to my bank natwest and instore i said this has happened, I have not bought anything, i would remember such a large purchase i want you to stop the payment right now, they refused and basically ignored me. I kicked off yelled at the top of my voice that they were not helping me, they were allowing a fraudulent transaction, and they should be doing as i asked by stopping the payment, it was my account, my money and they should do as i said...i made a great big scene, they did nothing

I walked down to carphone warehouse, told them the situ, they manager came to help me, checked my name and details and basically got straight on the phone had the item ordered diverted to my house, and called the police with details of the fraudulent address.

I got the item and carphone warehouse took it back and refunded me. They were helpful and great
natwest were useless and ignored me, they knew it was fraudulent but just didn't even care, they were just like leave it 3 days and claim it back, why should I let some scruffy robbing thief get a phone out of me.

i contacted the police when i had over £2000 worth of money taken from my bank account, abbey didnt want to know and it took me over 6 months to get every penny back, the police told me theres nothing they can do unless the bank ask them to investigate.
my fraud happened on my original card and the next 4 replacements the bank sent out.
all to mobile phone companies and top ups. one being carphone warehouse, orange, o2 and tmobile
