Credit Card Crime in Woodford


We have received reports of a new scam that has been attempted at addresses along Chester Road and Wilmslow Road.


Apparently the perpetrator makes a false application for a credit card in the name and address of the target property. They then monitor postal deliveries with the intention of intercepting the new credit card. This is made easier with the increased use of remote mail boxes positioned at gates to properties. Once they have the card they return on subsequent days to retrieve the separate letter containing the PIN number. The first the resident knows of the crime is when the credit card statement arrives! In a few cases this crime has gone wrong and some residents have been surprised to receive an unrequested credit card.


If you suspect you may be a victim of this crime or have received an unexpected and unrequested credit card or PIN number then please inform the police.
