Beware of phone scammer posing as Police

There is a cold caller phoning up on the landline saying he is part of the Police and there is an initiative to help people become more aware and put things in place to stop break-ins. He wants to make an appointment to come around. Do not let him as it is a hoax call. If you were to dial 1471 from your landline, his number comes up as 01733798130 (a Peterborough number). This is used by scammers. If the real police were to initiate something they would put it on their social media sites and/or turn up on the door step with full uniform and ID.
