officer - police chase - fraudsters

Elderly residents in Nantwich are being targeted by phone scammers pretending to be a police officer, Nantwich police has warned today.

There have been a number of incidents of elderly and vulnerable householders receiving phone calls from a man pretending to be a DC Smith from Hammersmith Police Fraud Squad.

But this caller is a scam, say officers, and any requests should not be met.

A Nantwich Police spokesperson said: “We have received several reports of elderly/vulnerable Nantwich residents being contacted by phone by a male purporting to be “DC Smith” from Hammersmith Police Fraud Squad.

“Do not do as he asks.

“This is a scam. Please share and inform neighbours.”
