East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service warns against fake advertising calls

East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service is aware that a small number of people have been approached over the phone in what is thought to be an advertising scam.

The caller claims to be producing annual planners or magazines on behalf of East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service and ask for payment for advertising space.

We would like to make clear that these phone calls have nothing to do with the Service. If you receive a call of this nature, please take as many details as possible and report them to the Action Fraud.

Action Fraud is the UK's national fraud reporting centre and the place for you to report fraud and scams, or to get advice if you're not sure what to do.
