    just a warning for anyone that doesn't know had a phone call today from a bloke saying he was from the local police community support and there doing a local magazine and do I want to advertise in it he said he was put on to me by the council and that im a pillar of the local comunty and come highly recommended as soon as I said I haven't done any work for the council he put the phone down. this isn't the first time his rang me or its been done also had a firemans one and nhs google business, etc these calls are getting more regular so you need to watch out. they ring off with held numbers or mobiles if your not sure if there genuine I just say I don't discuss business over the phone and do you want to meet they soon put the phone down or question them why there ringing from a with held number
