Beware of fraudsters that may try to call or knock on your door offering to test you for Covid-19.
Police have received a report from the carer of an elderly gentleman who received a phone call to say someone would be coming to test him for Covid-19.
Please make elderly relatives aware that these are scams. Hang up or close the door immediately.
Now, more than ever, we want to remind you to:
➡️ Check people are who they say they are when they phone you
➡️ Never send money or financial details to anyone who you don’t know or don’t trust
➡️ Keep your personal information to yourself
➡️ Make decisions in your own time – don’t be rushed
➡️ Phone a relative or friend for help or advice
If you have been a victim of a scam, report it to Action Fraud: http://orlo.uk/JN99r. Any suspicious emails can also be reported to firstname.lastname@example.org.
