Village Volunteers have received information that door to door fraudsters have been operating in West Sussex offering Covid-19 Virus checks that are fake. It is almost inevitable that even if these particular fraudsters don’t target future victims in East Sussex and our local area someone else is liable to.
These are always going to be fake offers and anyone receiving callers at their doors offering virus checks should immediately contact the police.
There are a multitude of other scams regarding the virus that have been reported please watch out for details of them on national and local news stations
Please do not become a fraud statistic by falling for fake calls, emails or any other type of contact regarding the corona virus.
