If you if suspect an incident to be fraud related please contact the 101 number for Hampshire Police, also you can log onto Action Fraud online and report the incident via their site https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/ - this could be in relation to cold callers reporting they are calling from your bank, pretending to be police officers etc.
One trick they tend to use is asking for the victim to call a number, this could be 161 for example. The victim then hangs up on the caller to dial this number, but the caller does not hang up on the victim so the line still stays connected. The victim is then passed to another caller thinking they are speaking to another department/person.
Over the last week or so police have been contacted by Action Fraud to complete home visits due to these sort of scams taking place.
