This story is over

Lincolnshire businesses are being warned to be vigilant following several scam calls targeting firms in Eagle and North Scarle, west of Lincoln.

The neighbourhood policing team issued an alert that some local businesses have been receiving phone calls from someone claiming to be from the Lincolnshire Police.

The caller then says they are selling adverts for a crime prevention magazine.

Officers said: “Lincolnshire Police would like to confirm that these calls are fake as they do not cold call businesses for any crime prevention magazines.”
