Once again, bogus police have been calling on people in the Perpignan area, and surrounding villages, preying particularly on the elderly as these type of cowards so often do.
One of the bogus police scams works as follows.
A door to door salesman arrives, but is quickly followed by two ‘policemen’ claiming that they have been following him as he is a known house burglar. Whilst one ‘policeman’ takes a statement, after asking the householder to check for stolen items of course, the other is busy relieving him of his valuables. If you find yourself in a situation like this, you are advised to ring the police (the real ones) immediately, either at your local police station if you have that number, or on 17.
