Selby Safer Neighbourhoods would like to make everyone aware that last week in the Tadcaster area a member of public received an unexpected phone call from a fake company. The company were claiming to be from the ‘safety crime awareness campaign’. This group were also claiming to be working on behalf of the Police in order to provide people with free crime prevention advice and equipment.
This is not the case and it is a scam attempting to exploit peoples trust in order to make appointments to visit their homes and gain access to properties. Please be aware of any calls such as this and don’t let yourself become a victim.
If you do wish to receive some genuine crime prevention advice or property marking, please don’t hesitate to contact your local Safer Neighbourhoods Team who will be more than happy help.
