Scam Alert – cold call from company claiming to help people with arthritis and other medical conditions

The Copers Cope Safer Neighbourhood Team have been made aware of elderly local residents receiving a phone call from a company claiming to help people who suffer from arthritis and other medical conditions.

The company then goes on to say that a representative works locally out of Beckenham hospital, a Mr Bell, checks have been made and it appears that there is no Mr Bell at Beckenham hospital. This company then attempts to arrange an appointment at the residents address.

If you receive or know of anyone who has received a call similar to this please contact us.
