Bogus Callers

Alert message sent 25/08/2017 12:26:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

In connection with a report of cold callers calling on properties in the area we would like to remind residents that we advise not to have any work carried out by cold callers as the risks are high, prices could be excessive, end up costing more than first agreed, and may not be of a quality standard.

If you need work carried out we advise that you ask friends and family to recommend a bona-fide business.
Please do not let strangers in to your property. Please inform neighbours of this, particularly elderly and vulnerable.

If you see cold callers in the area, or have any information that may relate to this please phone 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. If you feel pressured by cold callers please close the door and call the police on 999.
