Courier fraud is currently the highest reported fraud in West Sussex. Fraudsters contact victims by telephone claiming to be a police officer or bank official, duping individuals into handing over money or valuables to criminals posing as couriers. The fraudsters use a variety of different tactics, during the phone call they will convince the victim into handing over their card, valuables, or money to a courier who is sent directly to their home.
