Farida Mamujee wants to warn everyone about Community Aware magazine. She was cold-called and asked if she would like to support her local police by placing an ad in the magazine. First they wanted £195 + Vat, then reduced it to £174. Shortly afterwards she was sent an invoice. She says: “It was my luck that the area police officer came for a routine visit. I asked her to read it and she confirmed that local police are not aware of this.”

She therefore sent an email cancelling the advert.

If they are legitimate, they will accept the cancellation.
