Please be aware of an incident that occurred in the Bentley area whereby a resident was visited by a male claiming to be from Trading Standards.

The male stated that the resident had overpaid for work that had been carried out and was owed a large sum of money.

Approximately 20 minutes later a male called the resident stating that he was working for “Metpol” and said that the resident was owed £32,000 but would need to pay £32,000 in order to release £64,000.

Luckily the resident realised that this was a scam and contacted Police.

Please be alert to this type of scam, ensure you check for Identification and contact police if you suspect something is not right.
