Farmers still being targeted in bank fraud scam

We have become aware of fraud being perpetuated against farmers, it appears now that the fraudsters are turning their attention to smaller farm businesses.  The farmer receives a telephone call purporting to be from their Bank's card department. The caller advises the Farmer that their accounts have been targeted by fraudsters who are trying to process fraudulent entries. In order to protect the accounts, the Farmer is asked to telephone the number on the back of their cards and speak to the fraud department. When the Farmer calls the number they are not aware that the line has not been cleared and are still connected to the fraudsters. The Farmer is then given details of "safe accounts" that have been opened for them to prevent further transactions and instructed to transfer their funds to this new account online. Where customers do not have on line banking they are being advised to visit their branch and make CHAPS payment to the "safe account".
