Bogus Council Worker Alert

Alert message sent 28/10/2021 13:37:00

Information sent on behalf of Lancashire Constabulary


Good afternoon,

Over the course of the past couple of weeks we have received a number of calls in relation to council workers attending addresses in the Ormskirk area conducting checks regarding the Electoral Register.

These individuals have allegedly been in possession of identification, however, they have been reluctant to show it to homeowners if and when challenged.

Checks have been made with West Lancashire Borough Council and Lancashire County Council and there is NOT currently any campaigns of this nature being conducted by either councils.

Although we do not believe this to be a targeted attack, we are confident that these are bogus callers and ask that all residents remain vigilant at this time.

We aim to assure you that although these individuals have shown no violence or aggression to residents, we wish to identify and speak to them as soon as possible.

Remember to always check who you are opening your front door to, request identification from anyone who claims to be there for official purposes and if you are unsure or something doesn't feel right, DO NOT open the front door and should you feel it necessary, contact Police.

Thank you

PC 5345 Rigby
