Alert message sent 23/09/2020 13:01:00

Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert

An elderly resident received a call from a company claiming to supply smoke alarms, intruder alarms and other household safety devices. The caller asked questions that could identify if a person was vulnerable.

Do not engage with cold caller - you don't know who you are talking to! Never give out banking details or your pin number to a caller  no matter who they claim to be or where they claim to be from.
