Police Warning: Cold calls

We (the Met Police) have had two complaints about a security company calling residents in Harrow and stating they are either connected to the Police or are part of a Government project to protect homes.
They purport to be from SSH Fire and security Ltd (please be aware there may be a legitimate company by this name not involved in this potential scam).
One of the phone numbers given by the company was 0845 413 3776 – this number does not exist.
There are no such projects or schemes in operation in the Harrow area.
If you do receive a call of this nature please do not give out any personal details to the caller and inform us on 101.
If you would like crime prevention advise in your home please contact your local NPT either through their e mail address which can be found vie Met.Police.uk then follow the link to Your Borough and put your postcode in the search area or by calling 101.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the two champions who raised this issue, than you for your vigilance and concern for others.
