I wanted to let you know about something that has been happening locally lately. There’s been a report in the local newspaper of a scam that has taken place. A gang of fraudsters have been knocking on the doors of vulnerable people, pretending to be deaf and asking them to buy art works. They ask for £10 or £15 per item but they are not real works of art but just copies. There are both male and female fraudsters in the group. Incidents have been reported in Malvern and more recently Bromyard so they appear to have widened the area they are working in. If you see anyone looking suspicious, report it to the police using 999 or 101.
