We have been made aware that someone has been contacted by telephone by an individual claiming to be calling from Action Fraud, the recipient of this telephone call believed this to be a scam. We would ask all residents to be aware of all telephone calls that are unsolicited.
Don’t be afraid to say no to callers or to put the phone down to unsolicited callers – this is not rude, you are entitled to your own private space.
If you are in doubt as to who the caller is put the telephone down and directly call back the organisation yourself to establish if the call is genuine.
If you have elderly friends and neighbours please make them aware of this as well.
