Bogus Cold Callers Warning

Alert message sent 21/03/2018 10:03:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

We are urging residents to be vigilant after reports of bogus cold callers have been sighted in Upton and Kingsway.  Theses cold callers are stating the residents have an issue with their roof and are asking for money up front and not returning to complete the work.  They state they have been doing work nearby or at a neighbour’s house and allege that the occupant has loose tiles or urgent work needs completing.   Please do not accept services from doorstep traders and never give money up front.  Please call 101 with any reports of suspicious behaviour or sightings.  Please try to get descriptions of vehicles and registrations of any vehicle they have.  Please look out for your elderly neighbours.
