Police warning over scam letter

Homeowners are being told to be on their guard after a report of a scam letter falsely claiming to be from a loan company.

Police are warning families not to respond to the rogue letter which outlines a loan agreement and asks them to pay a substantial amount of money by a specific date.

The letter, which is known to have been delivered in the Hellesdon and Horsford areas, has a subject title Loan Agreement and recommends payment by bank transfer or credit/debit card.

Sgt Jeff Gover said: 'This issue was brought to our attention by a resident who was concerned that some people may be tempted to reply to the letter.

'We advise that any unexpected letters sent to you, which asks you for confidential details such as your bank details, should be treated with extreme caution.

You may also want to watch:

'If you have any concerns or if you believe you have been targeted by the scam you should contact the police.'

Anyone who thinks they may have received similar scam letters or been a victim to this scam should contact Norfolk Constabulary on 0845 4564567,
