POLICE are warning people about a telephone scam after two victims recently came forward.
One of the older residents, in Gosport, received a call from an individual stating they were a police officer from Greater Manchester police.
On this occasion the victim has parted with thousands of pounds.
The second incident was a call received by another older person. The caller stated they were from Inland Revenue demanding payment of thousands of pounds or the police would be visiting the home address.
