Police are warning residents about scam emails asking victims to update their bank account details.

North Wales Police took the Community Alerts site to make the public aware of the emails, and what to do if you receive one.

A spokesperson said: “Have you received an email asking you to verify or update your NatWest account details?  Don’t take the bait!

“The emails are FAKE and the links lead to malicious websites that are designed to steal your personal and financial information.

“If you have doubts about a message, contact the organisation directly. Don't use the numbers or address in the message - use the details from their official website.”
