Did anybody else get a letter from the police through their door yesterday?

I hade a very shabby letter on 1 shett of A4 come through the door - it had a small black and white police logo and hardly any formatting. It was from 'Chris Bagwell'.

Anyway, it says there has been burglaries 'a few miles from your address', and they think the culprit is linked to our area. Apparently, the police want to visit every house in the area for a chat (which should only take five minutes). Visiting every house is apparently very important to the sucess of the scheme.

I can't believe it's genuine. Not only is the presentation very shabby and easily forgable, I can't understand how the MPolice have the resource to visit every house in the area.

Anyway, I phoned Lewisham police station (not the number at the top of the letter I received) and they said the number I had 'was consistant with being a police number'.

So I guess it's genuine - but thought I'd post in case other had had it and were confused!
