Police appeal for witnesses to 'PROSAFE' security alarm scam
Fraud detectives are appealing for any residents approached by a man selling and installing PROSAFE security alarms recently to get in contact.
Hertfordshire Constabulary is currently investigating after a woman in her 90s and sold her five alarms at a highly inflated price of between £400 and £500. The alarms are worth £4.99.
A 50 year old man from Romford has been arrested on suspicion of fraud by false representation in connection with the incident and released on police bail.
Detective Constable Jason Tinsey from Operation Manhunt said: "We believe that other people in Hertfordshire may have fallen for this scam since the beginning of September and we would be keen to speak to anyone else who has purchased a PROSAFE alarm or had one fitted recently."
If you have been approached in this way please contact Operation Manhunt via Hertfordshire Constabulary’s non-emergency number 101 quoting crime reference number F2/13/1177.
