Two arrested for fraud by false representation

Two people have been arrested on suspicion of fraud by false representation.

A 31-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman were both arrested in connection with two incidents in the Frampton West area of Boston.  They have since been released under investigation.

They were arrested on Monday 27th July in connection with incidents in which elderly people were targeted by a person claiming to be a police officer.

On one occasion a person knocked at the victim's door claiming to be a police officer. On another the alleged fraud took place by telephone, with the caller again presenting themselves as an officer. 

If you receive a similar call, hang up and call 101 on a different line. In the event that you’ve arranged for cash to be collected by who you think may be an impersonator, call us on 999 immediately.

Your bank and our officers will never ask for your bank details. They will also never ask you to withdraw cash for them and to send it via courier. Please share this information with your neighbours, friends and family to make them more aware of this type of scam.
