Wiltshire Police wants to remind residents to be aware of fraudsters trying to take advantage of others during the current global situation.
We've heard from other police forces of new scams which are targeting the elderly and most vulnerable who are self-isolating at home.
Examples of fraud include, people visiting homes posing as police officers and/or health officials trying to gain entry with a view to burgle them. The criminals will often offer fake coronavirus testing as well as bogus food and medicine delivery services.
So far, we have not seen any such cases in Wiltshire - but we want to make people aware.
Top tips to thwart the fraudsters:
The majority of groups are well intentioned and will be working with charities or a local authority and should have proof that they are doing so.
Remember, currently in Wiltshire, police officers and medical professionals are not doing door-to-door checks or administering tests.
Report any suspicious person or activity to us straight away so we can gather evidence and take action against the individuals.
Call 101, if non-urgent, or 999 in an emergency. You can also report crime online now via our website: Reprt a crime
