Worried Senior Person on Phone

We wish to highlight a report from a Haddenham resident who recently received a hoax telephone call. The caller claimed to be conducting a health survey, in connection with the local health service.

Before the call concluded, an appointment was made so that the resident could attend Haddenham Medical Centre, to have some standard blood tests taken. When he turned up for the appointment at the specified time, he found that the Medical Centre knew nothing about it.

He was concerned to think that the hoax call might have been designed to ensure that his property was unoccupied at a specific time of the day, and he alerted the police.

Thankfully, there was no evidence that anyone had tried to gain access to his home in his absence. Nonetheless, he is keen to alert his fellow Haddenham residents to be extremely wary of unsolicited calls, especially if they lead to making an appointment of any kind.
