LIVE ONLINE QUESTION & ANSWER SESSION
FIFE POLICE DIVISION & FIFE TRADING STANDARDS

The following information was recently circulated by Police Scotland

Anyone can become a victim of bogus callers, so please do not think that it won’t happen to you.

Across Scotland, householders have lost more than £700,000 in just six months to bogus callers and doorstep crime.

Over the next two weeks, Fife Police Division and Fife Trading Standards will be working collaboratively as part of the Shut out Scammers campaign to raise awareness of offenders who cold-call people at their homes and scam them out of money.

As part of our activity, we will be giving you the opportunity to contact us via direct message on our Fife Police Division Facebook page with any question, queries or general advice you may be looking for in respect of bogus callers and doorstep crime.

Our event will be held on Thursday 18th April 2019 between 7pm and 8pm. Our event will be focusing on bogus callers and doorstep crime.

This is a completely confidential method of speaking to the Police and Trading Standards. Once your private message has been answered the conversation thread will be deleted and no record will be kept of it on our systems.

Our Private message function will be open for the allocated times stated. This will allow you to message us directly and allow us the opportunity to answer your questions. Although we will be focusing on bogus callers and doorstep crime you can still contact us on the day with any concerns you may have relating to crimes of dishonesty.

Please note this event and our social media accounts are not for reporting crime. If you need to report a crime, call 101 and if you feel unsafe or feel that you are in any danger then call 999 immediately.
