North Wales Police has issued a warning to businesses over a potential fraud they have been made aware of.

A man is calling local businesses telling them he is an employee of North Wales Police.

The caller then asks them for sponsorship money “to facilitate a crime prevention campaign involving young children and schools.”

The caller gives his name as Mark Shepard, a police spokesperson said: “We can confirm that they have no connection to North Wales Police.

Please report any suspicious contact with this person or a company stating that they are affiliated with North Wales Police to the Force Control room via 101”
