Report Fraud

All reports of fraud and any other financial crime should be reported to Police via 101 without delay.

However, if the fraud is ongoing or you have been defrauded and persuaded to transfer funds out of your account within the last 24 hours please contact Police immediately on 999.

Reporting incidents assists Police Scotland in tackling fraud and enables us to identify areas of concern and patterns of behaviour. The information you provide is valuable and could lead to the prosecution of offenders and to ensuring the safety of the public. We will record all information you provide and appropriate action will be taken.
