Police Notice – COVID-19 Air purifier scam

I just wanted to make you aware of a scam that has been going around small businesses lately. According to our information, individuals are going around with letters to small businesses saying that they are required to have COVID-19 air purifiers installed and ask for money before payment. 

There is no such thing as a COVID-19 air purifier and small businesses have been scammed out of hundreds or pounds.

Please could I ask that you make the businesses in your areas aware of this scam taking place and to please contact us if they do have anyone trying this scam in their establishment.

Many thanks

Kind Regards,
