We received reports that yesterday afternoon (15th June) a male was calling at properties in Coldstream offering to carry out landscaping work. The male called himself ” Mr Evans”, was middle aged, of stocky build with short brown hair and was wearing a high visibility Jacket. He was driving a white Ford Transit Van registration number SF64 URO. This vehicle has links to a number of bogus caller incidents and other criminality. Please call Police immediately to report if this vehicle is seen in your area and do not engage with the occupants.

How can you protect yourself from Bogus Callers?
• Be on guard if someone turns up unexpectedly.
• Keep your front and back doors locked.
• Use the door viewer or nearby window when answering the door.
• Fit a door chain or bar – use it and keep it on when talking to callers at the door.
• If you’re not sure, don’t answer the door.
• Don’t feel embarrassed - genuine callers expect you to be careful.
• Only let callers in if they have an appointment and you have confirmed they are genuine.
• Always ask for identification badges of anyone you answer the door to, but don’t rely on them. Identity cards can be faked – phone the company to verify their identity.
• Some companies offer a password system. Ask your utility providers if this can be used and if you have a password with a company make sure the caller uses it.
• Never let people try to persuade you to let them into your home even if they are asking for help – they may not be genuine. If someone is persistent, ask them to call at another time and arrange for a friend or family member to be with you.
• Never agree to pay for goods or give money to strangers who arrive at your door.
• Don’t keep large amounts of money in your home.
• Remember, it’s your home. There’s no reason why anyone should ever enter your home against your wishes.
If there is a suspicious caller at your house keep them outside and call 101, if they refuse to leave your door or you feel threatened call 999.
