Dear Members,

 I am writing to notify you of a possible fraud attempt/s in Boston area. A person is reported to be calling in person claiming to be "Crime Prevention Officer from Lincs Police".

 Please be aware - if someone comes to to your door claiming to be police and you are not sure- please do not answer the door and call 101. 
 All police officers and staff carry an Identity Card - so please ask for one. You can also verify this ID card using your own phone - dial 101 and check with our control room staff.

 A genuine police staff or officer will always comply with you calmly in verifying their identity.

 Also please look-after your neighbours if they are elderly and/or vulnerable who could trust such police officers/staff.

 Any suspicious persons/activity - please report on 101 or 999 as appropriate.
