Distraction Burglaries

We are urging members of the public to be vigilant following two distraction burglaries in the Stanground and Fletton area in the last 24 hours.

It has been reported that a women in her 40's entered two homes and asked for a glass of water and to use their phone as her car had broken down.

On both occasions handbags were taken.

Police are asking people to be vigilant and check in on vulnerable relatives and neighbours. Do not let people into your home if you don't know who they are. Check ID carefully and make enquires using telephone numbers from your own enquiries, not telephone numbers supplied by the person at the door.

Anyone with information should report it by calling 101 and quoting #Op Cabot.

Latest Attempted Fraud

We have just been made aware of the following telephone call that was received by a Cambridgeshire resident only minutes ago. Although this type of call is nothing new, it is clearly continuing to impact on our local communities.

‘My wife just had a scam phone call on our landline stating that there was a warrant out for her arrest. This upset her considerably. She was advised to press 1 to speak to an officer or 2 to learn about the file. She did neither and hung up. The number given by 1471 was 07377289633’

The mobile number was called but the line disconnected. Just to confirm, do not push the button on the keypad and hang up just like the person did above. Neither the police or any law enforcement would contact people in such a way and I trust you will all know that, but there will be people out there that you can help warn so please pass on and help prevent fraud.

The fraudster informed the victim that for a £1.50 fee the GP could attend their home to administer the flu jab and requested bank details in order to confirm the appointment.

A spokesperson from NHS England and NHS Improvement, said: "If someone claiming to be from the NHS contacts you by phone and asks for payment, please be aware they could be a criminal trying to trick you."
