Information sent on behalf of Lincolnshire Police

Hello good afternoon. We would like to remind people to be Scam Aware after a recent incident in Horncastle where people have been a victim of fraud after believing they were purchasing a TV online on Black Friday.

The website which looked very professional does not know exist! And was offering products at reduced prices and asked customers to pay via Bank Transfer!

Unless you are paying a company which you know and trust do not pay via Bank Transfer.

Please remember – if it sounds too good to be true it normally is!
