Police in Växjö urge elderly people to be extra vigilant of fraud attempts due to the coronavirus.
"It has come to the attention of the police that elderly people are called by people who offer to shop for them because of the coronavirus. The police cannot rule out that fraudsters can take advantage of this situation and therefore want to encourage older people to be extra vigilant.
