Pett WI Big Village Lunch – Sunday 2 June

Bogus Callers: Advice from Hastings Police

Please be aware of reports of bogus callers in the Bexhill area of Rother.
The caller has gained entry under the guise of a waterboard official.
The suspect who is described as a tanned male with a beard, 30-40 years, 5ft 10 wearing a black coat, dark scarf and hat is then distracting victims and stealing from them.
Please be on your guard should you get an unexpected call.

Here is some advice for you all to be aware of which may be of help.

Here are some examples of some excuses bogus callers use to gain entry.

‘I was passing and noticed your roof needs repairing’
‘I’m from the police, can I come in and talk to you?’
‘We have lost our dog, can we use your phone?’
‘I’m from the waterboard, there is a leak in your street’

What would you do if one of these people called on you at home?.
Doorstep criminals will use excuses to enter your home to steal, or charge inflated prices for “repairs”.

LOCK ALL DOORS
Distraction burglars working in pairs will use the back door whilst you are kept at the front door.

NOT SURE? DON’T OPEN THE DOOR
It’s ok to say NO and tell them to leave. Always keep the chain on if you need to open the door.
Never employ passing traders who cold call, and never feel pressured to say yes.

ASK FOR ID/PASSWORD
Bogus callers will often use a good fake ID. Genuine callers won’t mind if you take the time to establish their identity by calling their employer.
Ask them for a password if you have set one up.

COMMON EXCUSES 
Energy suppliers, waterboard or council needs to have access to your home.
Plain clothes police officer needs to talk to you about a crime.
Youths have lost a dog, ball, need to make a telephone call, or need a glass of water.
Builder says he was passing and noticed your roof or garden needs work.

WHAT TO DO
If you feel threatened call 999
Report doorstep criminals by calling 101
Textphone 18001 101 or send a text 07786 208090

In doubt??? Keep them out
