The PSNI has been offering advice to staff at care and residential providers in the Causeway Coast and Glens Council area on avoiding scams.

The initiative, say police, follows reports of staff being allegedly “duped” at Causeway Hospital, when two men posing as a financial services company were able to operate a tax scam.

During police visits to care providers, staff guidance is offered around the type of scams that are out there and what people can do to protect themselves.
