COUNTY: Fraudsters pretending to be from national companies are encouraging residents to download an app which lets them access their bank accounts.

Police say over the weekend, two residents in north Dorset were contacted by callers purporting to be from Santander and BT.

The victims were asked to download a mobile phone app called Teamviewer 13 which enables screen sharing. It enables the caller to access the bank accounts of those who use the app, and transfer money out.

Officers are urging residents not to engage with the callers or download any apps requested by them.
