Councils are warning people to beware of scammers pretending to be health officials or offering to pick up food and medicines by knocking on doors.
Advice is – do not open your door, don’t let them in.
Tell your friends, relatives, neighbours about this scam ….
Fraudsters are also selling counterfeit face masks and hand sanitisers, says the LGA, which speaks for councils in England and Wales.
Please do not accept help from cold-callers.
