** WARNING ** from West Mercia to Neighbourhood Watch
** WARNING **
Police forces have become aware of a fraud circulating targeting elderly and vulnerable members of the community.
Some older people have received telephone calls from a caller who purports to be from the GP surgery and is asking for an appointment to discuss the persons mobility needs. During the appointment, the older person is persuaded to buy mobility aids which are either unnecessary or inappropriate and always expensive.
If you receive a call like this, please check with your GP surgery first before agreeing to a visit!
