TWO households in Largs have been targeted by online scammers, according to local police.

Both matters were highlighted in the crime report sent to Largs Community Council by Police Scotland.

Police say their enquiries are ongoing into an attempted online banking fraud in Kelburn Court on Tuesday, February 6.

This follows an attempted fraud at an address in Nelson Street on January 22.
