Nottinghamshire Police are appealing to people across the county to get in touch with them if they have heard from a company going by the name of Cubus Security Services.
The appeal comes after the company advertised a training and induction course at Nottingham Trent University’s conference centre on 16 and 17 February 2012, and then did not turn up.
The university received a number of calls about the course and one person arrived on the morning, only to be told it there was no such course booked.
A letter sent by the company to a job applicant requests personal information and the payment of £55 for an enhanced Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) check.
Call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, ext 800 3035.
