News Items > Fraudsters


Mid Sussex has been targeted recently by fraudsters who phone residents (usually those who are elderly) and pretend to be a police officer.

The latest incidents involve a male claiming to be from Hammersmith Police, who states they have arrested a male / group of males who had in their possession a quantity of credit/debit cards.

They will then go on to indicate that the person they are calling is a potential victim and will endeavour to obtain their card details and other personal information.

Thankfully, most people seem to be quite wary about giving out details such as these. If you could help us spread the word by displaying the  poster (click here to download) in Parish Notice boards / Community Halls that would be great.

Many thanks for your help,
