Neighbourhood Watch: Beware bogus calls from your 'GP'.
Dear Watch Member,
Police forces have become aware of a fraud that is circulating targeting elderly and vulnerable members of
the community. Some older people have received telephone calls from a caller who purports to be from their GP's surgery and is asking for an appointment to discuss their mobility needs. During the appointment, the older person is persuaded to buy mobility aids which are either unnecessary or inappropriate and always expensive. Could you please warn your neighbours to be on their guard, especially the elderly and vulnerable, and tell them that if they receive a call like this, to please check with their GP's surgery first before agreeing to see anyone.
