Scam be be aware of

Alert message sent 10/08/2018 14:20:00

Information sent on behalf of Northamptonshire Police

I heard of this scam the other day.  I am not sure if this is happening around our area, but just thought it would be worth mentioning.

A member of the public, had an iPhone delivered to his house by uk mail which he hadn’t ordered. 10 mins later this guy in DPD uniform came to the door saying they made a mistake and needed the phone back. The police were called and he left.  When the police arrived they said this is happening a lot in the Gravesham area. They have opened an o2 account in my dads name and intended to take the phone back and sell it on leaving my dad with the debt.  
If you receive a phone unannounced call the police.
