Urgent: Scam warning post
We’ve been made aware of individuals in the East End of Newcastle posing as YHN or Council employees and visiting properties claiming that they are there to enforce COVID-19 regulations.
Please be aware that no one but the police can ‘enforce’ social distancing regulations. You should report anyone claiming this who is not a uniformed police officer to Northumbria Police.
All of our staff will carry official ID with them. If you are visited by anyone claiming to be from YHN then please ask to see their ID. Do not engage with them if they are unable to provide ID for whatever reason.
Take care and stay safe everyone
