More than 100 people in Hertfordshire have been targeted by phone scammers since the beginning of March.
As reported in The Crow, fraudsters impersonating police officers have been hitting homes across the region, including properties in Buntingford and South Cambridgeshire.
Hertfordshire Police said they received 104 reports of possible scams between March 1 and March 19.
Detective Inspector Jason Keane, from Hertfordshire Constabulary, said: “We are continuing our robust approach in dealing with those who participate in phone scams, particularly when they target the vulnerable and elderly members of our community. Arrests are continuing to be made in connection with these types of scams, but people still need to be aware.”
