Suffolk Police is issuing a warning to Suffolk businesses following reports of a telephone scam.

A business owner in central Ipswich reported being contacted by a man purporting to be from Suffolk Constabulary, asking for money.

The caller asked the business for a payment of £299 to sign up to a discount initiative, which he said was set up in order to give discounted prices on goods and services to police officers and staff.

A Suffolk Constabulary spokesman says: "We would ask business owners and employees to be vigilant and aware of this approach, as Suffolk Constabulary does not contact businesses and ask for money to participate in discount schemes."

Businesses are asked to make employees aware and to report any incidents or attempted incidents directly to Action Fraud on their official website:
