Possible Bogus Caller

May 28, 2010

We have had a report of a white male of around 5’7″ with brown greasy hair, knocking on doors in Great Chesterford claiming to be there to carry out works to properties on behalf of the District Council.

Whilst we have had no reports of thefts so far surrounding this man, he does not work for Uttlesford District Council.  Anyone working for the council should be carrying an I.D. badge and if maintenance staff, should arrive in a U.D.C. or Housing Association van.  If you are EVER in ANY doubt as to whether to allow a caller access to your property, you have every right not to let them in.  If the caller is genuine, they will have your details to contact you by telephone or mail to arrange access.

If this man comes to your  door, please call 0300 333 4444 to let us know immediately.
