Police Message

Be aware of potential scams

Date: 28 October 2010

With the clocks soon due to go back and the nights starting to draw in, Northamptonshire Police would like to remind members of the public: “If you’re not sure, don’t open the door”.

If you are concerned about a caller at your door or suspect that distraction burglars or rogue doorstep traders are operating in your community, please call our dedicated Doorstep crime Action Network (DAN) number 0345 23 07 702. For more information about DAN please Click Here.

We would also like to remind members of the public to be cautious when receiving unsolicited telephone calls or emails by companies asking for details such as credit cards and personal information.
Although many companies maybe genuine and are not breaking the law by contacting you, we would urge you to be wary of giving out any information especially when speaking to companies who you have had no previous dealings with.

Please Click Here to view a very informative leaflet (PDF), which has been produced by Age UK. Although this is specifically aimed at the elderly, it provides very useful advice on how to prevent yourself and others from becoming a victim of a scam, which can be relevant to all age groups.

PC 1932 Jason Brotherston said: “James has access to this vehicle, and we believe he could be anywhere in the country. We are working with other officers around the country to help us locate him and his red Polo with the distinctive letters ‘NEW’ in the registration number.”
