Crime: Bogus Sales Reps

Bogus-callerPolice were called out to Winton Crescent last night in the early evening, Monday 27th February 2018 after reports of suspicious activity by what was perceived to be bogus sales reps.

Officers then conducted door to door enquiries looking for 2 males, who had earlier been going round doors pretending to be from an energy company. Police had been called when residents became suspicious at the lack of ID.

We’ve asked for more information about this story, including descriptions from the lady who contacted us.

Always ask for ID

A reminder that door to door Sales reps of any kind should always carry an ID badge and generally don’t work after normal working hours when it’s dark. Always ask for ID and never let anybody into your home without being 100% sure who they are.
