*** BOGUS WORKMEN - Advice from PC Gordon Currie following incidents locally of Bogus Workmen calling on local homes.

posted 24 May 2017, 02:54 by Communications TEAM

DOORSTEP CRIME / BOGUS WORKMEN 

What is Doorstep Crime? 

Bogus Callers: Will attempt to get into your home or obtain personal details by pretending to be someone they're not, including: 

Council Staff 

Meter readers 

Charity collectors 

Police officers 

in reality, they are criminals trying to steal your cash and valuables. 

Rogue Traders: Usually cold callers, offering to make repairs or carry out work on your house, garden or driveway. In reality they charge inflated prices for shoddy or often completely unnecessary work. 

We do not recommend dealing with cold callers for property maintenance and repairs to your home and garden areas. 

Contact your local council to see if they operate a trusted traders scheme or similar, where you will find a list of accredited trades people. 

Below is some useful advice and considerations. 

Think: 

Be on your guard if someone turns up unexpectedly. 

Be aware of methods used by criminals to distract you such as being asked to make a phone call, to use your toilet, for a glass of water, or being asked to check your water or gas supplies. 

Do not keep large amounts of money at home. 

Does your premises or garden really require work to be carried out. 

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. 

Be vigilant for vulnerable neighbours who may fall foul of these criminals. 

About calling the police when you see anything suspicious. 

Never let someone you don't know into your house, if you're not sure don’t answer the door. 

What can I do? 

SECURE: 

Use a door chain or bar: Always put the chain on before answering the door, and keep it on while taking to callers 

If you have a door viewer- use it. 

Keep rear, side doors and windows secure.
