Bogus callers

TAYSIDE Police continue to urge householders, the elderly in particular, to be on their guard against bogus callers who claim to represent legitimate organisations or companies.

They warn all householders should be vigilant and suspicious of everyone who calls unannounced at their door.

Where someone claims to be a workman of any description, demand to see some form of identification.

Community liaison officer Constable Ally Smith told this month’s meeting of Forfar Community Council that all bona fide callers should have ID and will not be offended if they are asked to provide it.

He said: “Above all, if you are not satisfied that a caller is genuine, do not let them in and contact the police on 0300 111 2222.”
