  1. This is quite a common accurance my sister was robbed in her own home a couple of years ago by some lowlife saying he was selling cleaning products is dusters etc luckily he was caught and put in prison, please be AWARE!

  2. These characters have been doing this for years. Don’t answer the door to anyone cold calling, they are usually being controlled by villains. It’s time this should stop, as I say, not new!

  3. Thinking back it was happening in my childhood, always when Dad was at work, on one occasion when my teenage sis had firefighter boyfriend round he left his peaked cap on the bannister knob and you should have seen him run once he had delivered his con you to buy patter Mum moved slightly and he almost left skid marks! Word spread as no one ever tried ours again but neighbours had conmen still try. If your washing line is exposed and you feel vulnerable if female alone, have some socks & boxer shorts whatever to give the impression you aren’t, they seem to be cowards and will hopefully pass your home by.

    • Good Idea Sandra. These characters will target vulnerable often elderly people. They are told to look for bungalows with handrails etc and have been known to pass on information to villains who will then target these properties. If you live near or know of elderly friends and family, pass this on. The police are aware of these bandits and would welcome any information you might have. A simple message COLD CALLER? GIVE THEM THE COLD SHOULDER! Don’t open the door to them.,,!
