SCAM ALERT.

Alert message sent 23/02/2021 09:55:00

Information sent on behalf of Lancashire Constabulary


We have been made aware of a Scam incident that occurred in Bolton-le-Sands last week. Two girls purporting to be from Age UK have visited an elderly male's house telling him they were from Age UK and offered to go and do his shopping for him. He handed over £50 for the shopping and has not seen his shopping or the girls again !
They did not show any ID, but as he had been in touch with Age UK earlier in the day he thought all was legitimate.
Please ALWAYS ask for ID. If not sure ring up the company concerned.
Age UK staff always carry photo ID badges.
Please report any suspicious sightings like this
or suspicious activities on 101, or 999.

Thanks.
