Scarborough residents are being warned to be aware of 'press 1' fraudsters.

Anyone who receives a call and is told to press 1 to speak to someone should be aware that this is a scam, police have said.

By pressing 1, people may face a high connection fee and be charged at a premium rate for the call.

The police advise is to end the call and avoid interacting with the caller.
