Cyber criminals posing as NCA officers to con elderly out of their life savings

The National Crime Agency has warned citizens about a highly proficient group of fraudsters who are posing as NCA officers to con innocent citizens, especially elderly and vulnerable ones, out of their life savings.
NCA warned that the fraudsters are contacting elderly and vulnerable people over the phone, identifying themselves as NCA officers by using fake NCA identity numbers and are adding to the bluff by citing the real NCA Control Centre phone number.
After identifying themselves as NCA officers and winning the trust of the victims, the fraudsters inform victims that they have been hacked and instruct them to move their savings to a safe account or to provide the officers remote access to their computers.
