Bogus Phone Calls Helston Area

Alert message sent 31/08/2017 14:02:00

Information sent on behalf of Devon and Cornwall Police

We have received information from a resident in the Helston area regarding Bogus Calls.
A male caller stated he was from British Gas and wanted their meter details.
The resident hung up and rang British gas who confirmed they had not made this call.
The bogus caller made a further call and when told British Gas had been contacted, he became abusive.
Residents are reminded to exercise caution when answering the phone to unexpected callers, never give out personal details to persons purporting to be from a company you may use. Never dial a number given to you by that caller for confirmation as it may not be a genuine number for the company discussed, end the call and replace the receiver.
