We understand from Kent Police that the attached scam letters impersonating the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy were delivered to firms in the Sandwich area telling them that, by law, they need to purchase air purifiers to comply with Covid-19 regulations.

We have been advised by Kent Police that this is a scam and any companies/organisations receiving any letter like this are asked to ignore them but to report any incidents to Action Fraud at www.actionfraud.police.uk or by calling 0300 123 2040.
