Fraudsters target Grantham's elderly
Lincolnshire Police have once again received reports of vulnerable and elderly people being targeted by fraudsters impersonating police officers.
Elderly members of the public have received calls from criminals pretending to be police officers in order to defraud victims of large amounts of money.
Please be aware the police would never ask anyone to do this. If you receive a call and you are unsure please take the officer’s force and police number and then call 101 on a separate telephone line immediately.
We are also asking people to make their elderly family members aware of this scam, and to raise as much awareness as possible.
Please report all fraud offences to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 , or call 101.
The recent incidents were reported from Louth (incident 415 of 24 May) and Grantham (incident 193 of 22 May). Thankfully these attempts were unsuccessful.
