Police have issued a warning after bogus phone callers targeted a number of homes in Eastbourne yesterday (June 11).

A total of 18 incidents were reported to Sussex Police on Wednesday, with each case seeing a potential victim receiving a phone call from a person purporting to be ‘Max Morris’, who spoke with an American accent.

The man said he was calling from ‘Coopers Law Firm’ and then stated the person was involved in a case going to court against or involving them and that they had to call back on a number given. Most of the messages were left on answer phones.
