Police have issued a warning after fraudsters have been using people's personal details to have goods delivered to their homes, which they later collect.

Elderly residents have been receiving parcels delivered from various catalogue companies in their names which they never ordered. They later receive a call from an unknown person who says the parcel had been delivered to them by mistake and that they would come over and collect it.

The packages mostly contain items of significant value such as mobile phones, video cameras, shoes and clothing.

Anyone who receives a package which they did not order and a phone call from someone saying they want to pick it up should contact Detective Constable Sharon Vann at Aylesbury CID via 0845 8 505505.
