Kathy and Jim Griffin from Surrey were conned out of £42,000 by a conman taking advantage of a new fraud trend known as vishing. They received a phone call from someone who pretended to be from their bank, who said there had been suspicious activity on their account. The fraudster then took advantage of their concern to get hold of money they had borrowed in order to invest in a buy-to-let property.

And the authorities are warning that there's an increasing chance that you could be a victim of the same fraud.%VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%
