We have been made aware by Hertfordshire Fire & Rescue that there is a scam in action where a company which goes by the names of Diamond Media, Hamilton Forbes or Barrington House Publishing have been making contact by phone with local companies trying to sell advertising space in diaries.

This company has been quoting that they are working on behalf of either the Police or the Fire & Rescue Service. They then make contact some months later chasing payment of their invoice.

These companies are not instructed by Hertfordshire Fire & Rescue Service.
