Are they for real? Don't like their ID? Don't let them in!

Dear Resident

Bogus officials are a type of doorstep criminal who pretend they have a legitimate reason to enter your home.

They may mention the gas or water supply, your benefits or other important matters.
Once inside, they will try to distract you so that they can steal from you.

Do not let unexpected callers into your home. If in doubt…keep them out!


Report bogus officials to the Police online or by calling 101.
