Police have issued a warning after reports in Boston of someone claiming to be crime prevention officer.
Officers from Operation Signature, a newly launched Operation focused on identifying and protecting vulnerable victims of fraud in Lincolnshire, have issued a fraud alert after the reports.
They say they have been made aware of an individual knocking on doors in the Boston area, claiming to be a Crime Prevention Officer from Lincolnshire Police.
Officers stress that all employees of Lincolnshire Police carry identification, and would be happy to show it, and a quick call to the non-emergency number on 101 can check this.
Anyone who believes they have a bogus caller should let the police know on the same number, 101.
