Beware bogus phone calls relating to library fines
A Lancashire resident was contacted out of the blue about overdue library charges. The caller claimed that the charges had been accrued by a family member, who had unfortunately died. Library services would never contact anyone in this way. If you do receive such a call, do not pass over any personal or banking information. Hang up and block the number if possible; - Contact your local library if you are concerned about overdue charges.
