Roseland Online has just had an email in from a local business saying:
“We have had a strange call this morning which we think was a scam. The man said he was from Cornwall Police (but could not pronounce Kernow) and was asking for money for advertising in a police magazine. The guy was very pushy and when he realised he was getting nowhere he hung up the phone.”
Speaking to Tregony Police, they have no knowledge of this being anything but bogus.
We want to remind everyone not to give out any details of credit cards, etc. over the phone unless you’re absolutely sure who you’re talking to.
