We have just received this from one of our members, which only emphasises the need to be always on our guard.
"Someone is phoning people pretending to be from Crimestoppers (who deny any involvement) and asking people a number of questions including their age and whether they have a smoke alarm and then more worryingly, a burglar alarm, which is obviously a suspicious question. The person that called withheld their number.
This has been reported to Sutton Police today.
If you receive such calls, please let the police know.
Under no circumstances should residents divulge any information to an unknown or unexpected caller.
