Conmen are sending fake texts to residents in Lancashire, offering refunds from retail giant Argos.

The scam, which is designed to nab personal and financial details from victims, has sparked a warning from Action Fraud, the UK's national fraud and cyber crime reporting centre.

"Always question unsolicited requests for your personal or financial information in case it's a scam," the organisation warned.

"Never automatically click on a link in an unexpected email or text."
