Caution – Is this a scam?

Some people in the village have recently received letters that appear to come from people they know in the village – these people do not know that a letter has been sent in their name. It is asking you to join a free app called Nextdoor Horley and says it is a neighbourhood hub for useful information. It asks you to download an app and gives you a code to join.

I checked with the person on my letter and they did not send it out, but had gone onto the website when they received the letter from someone else in the village.

Looking online it’s not clear if it is a scam or a money making scheme, but using people’s names without their permission is obviously not genuine. So please don’t go onto the website as your name could be used on other letters.

We have plenty of ways to share information and support each other in the village in a safe environment.
