A warning has been dished out by police to householders in Windsor to watch out for bogus phone callers.
The force said the bogus caller called an elderly person yesterday afternoon claiming to be from Slough Police.
He told her he needed to speak to her daughter about a break-in, but when questioned said the call was none of her business and hung-up without leaving any contact details.
In April,10 similar calls were received by residents in the Windsor area and after an investigation proved to be bogus.
Sergeant Rob Dalton, from the Windsor neighbourhood team, urged householders to record as much information as possible and to ask questions.
He said: "I would ask residents to be vigilant and do exactly what the elderly lady did, which was to ask further questions and report the call to police when she felt it was suspicious."
Call police on 101 if you have information.
