Staying safe on the doorstep Rogue Traders and Bogus Callers

Alert message sent 27/02/2020 09:01:00

Information sent on behalf of West Yorkshire Police

Bogus callers will try to con their way into your home to steal or trick you out of money. They often pretend to be from a professional company such as your energy or water provider.It’s a sad fact of life that some criminals will take advantage of elderly and vulnerable people in our communities and trick their way into their homes.

Please help spread the message by talking to your neighbours, friends and relatives about doorstep crime. Protect the vulnerable within our communities.

Make sure they don’t hand over any money upfront and remind them they don’t have to let anyone into their home if they don’t want to.
