Cumbria police investigating calls from 'police officer' demanding money

AN investigation has been launched by Cumbria police after reports of a man claiming to be a police officer demanding money from businesses and residents.

Police said the man has been calling from a withheld number and aggressively demanding payments be made into a bank account called ‘Community Safety Plus Ltd’.

A number of calls have been received in the Carlisle area but police have warned residents county wide to be on their guard.

A police spokesman said: “Cumbria Constabulary would like to assure the public that this is something police would not do and it appears to be a telephone scam.

“Do not pay any money or provide any personal, or bank, details to this male or anyone else purporting to be a police officer.”

Anyone who has been contacted is asked to phone police on 101 or Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.
