The caller was using the internet when a pop up message appeared on their computer claiming to be from Humberside Police. The message suggested that the user had done something wrong and need to pay the force £100 to remove the message.

This is not a message from Humberside Police and people are urged not to follow the instructions on screen or send any money.
