THE number of scam police and bank callers is on the rise across East Sussex.

Sussex Police are seeing a concerning increase in fraudulent telephone calls to the elderly.

The caller pretends to be a police officer or from your bank, and asks you to tell them your bank details, such as account and PIN numbers.

If you are suspicious, report the call to your bank or the police on 101.
