A spokesperson from Sussex Police said, “We are aware of a series of frauds in which people purporting to be police officers have targeted vulnerable people.

“Members of the public are reminded that police officers will not ask you for money or bank details, and will always carry ID that they will be more than happy to show you upon request.”
