Home » News » Remain Alert to Scams

Thames Valley Police have recently issued a booklet, in electronic form, which explains the details of a number of scams currently being employed to rob honest, trusting people of their hard-earned cash.

The booklet, which has a forward by Esther Rantzen, is well written and has a very attractive appearance. It is easy to read, and is highly recommended if you're keen to stay one jump ahead of the tricksters and con-men.

If you have elderly friends or relatives who you suspect may be especially vulnerable to the activities of these despicable and immoral beings, please take the time to acquaint yourself with the contents of the booklet, and help to explain the risks to those you love.

It's a sad reflection of our society, but better to be forewarned ...

You can download the booklet by clicking on the PDF just below the photograph on this page.
