The CBO states she must not:
- Request any money from any member of the public in Cambridge city as bordered by the A14, M11, A505 and A11.
- Be in possession of any bank card or other financial documents that are not in her own name.
- Attend any address of any individual to whom she is not related, and who is or appears to be over 65 years of age, or is frail or otherwise vulnerable by virtue of physical or mental illness or disability.
- Enter into a financial transaction directly or indirectly with any individual to whom she is not related, and who is or appears to be over 65 years of age, or is frail or otherwise vulnerable by virtue of physical or mental illness or disability.
