A pensioner is urging residents to be on their guard after she was called by a phone scammer.

Pamela Clark, 73, of Winstree Road, Burnham, received a call by a company called Protection Services, asking her to provide bank details so they could take money out of her account.

The company claimed she had filled out a form to use their services and wanted to bill her £49.

Mrs Clark said: “They called me and said they were taking £49 out of my account but I knew nothing about it. I had never heard of them before.

“They wanted me to give my bank details over the phone but there’s no way they were going to take money from me."
