|Dear Kent Residents
The Cost Of Living crisis is making everyone anxious and that can make us more vulnerable to scams or doorstep crime. Being aware of the scams that are circulating can help keep you safe. Make sure you share that knowledge with friends, family and neighbours. Think about printing these emails and displaying in community areas.
The more informed we become the less vulnerable we are to these criminals
Victim Safeguarding Officer
Last week we issued an alert about charity cold callers in East Farleigh. The Heart of Kent Hospice has confirmed that these were actually their Fundraising Canvassers and the resident was misinformed when they enquired about cold callers. Heart of Kent has informed us that the fundraisers will be operating in the area that the hospice covers. For further information you can visit www.hokh.info/canvassing
Our advice remains that you should not open your door to cold callers and please continue to report any suspicious cold callers in your area to CrimeStoppers (see details below)
