SSE scam

One of our Shortland’s residents has been in touch (thanks) to highlight details of a scam letter which refers to SSE Business received by a resident near
to Shortlands Ward. Here is the extract:
 “A friend who lives in Monks Orchard Way had a letter (addressed by address but not name) posted through his door today (23 November) which appears to be

 from SSE Business (but is clearly a scam) alleging the recipient has an unpaid bill of some £22 and saying that as no-one was home when they called to disconnect
 the supply, a £60 fee will be added to the account and suggesting that they may return with a warrant for entry to the house. My friend is not with SSE but people
 who are, might be caught out. Thought it was worth mentioning as it’s possible the same scam will be tried elsewhere in the borough.”
