Police have warned the public, and farmers in particular, to beware a newsletter scam.

A spokesperson said the scam involved people being contacted by phone by scammers claiming to be from the local police station and selling advertising space in a force newsletter.

“Lincolnshire Police does not request donations direct to individuals and you should never give your bank details over the telephone to cold callers,” they said.

Anyone who receives such calls should phone the police non-emergency line on 101 quoting ‘incident 274 September 4’.
