Police warn about scam

COUNCILLOR Barbara Harrison has told police about a scam email she received which looked as if it had been sent by a relative, asking for cash.

It claimed that the relative had been mugged in Cardiff and asked for cash – but the West Hallam councillor’s relative was in Derby at the time.

Insp Nick Daines at Ilkeston station said: “We would urge any internet users to be careful if they receive any unsolicited and unexpected emails even if they appear to come from an apparently legitimate source.”
