Cold callers 30 Apr 17:42

Merton Police have received reports that men are cold calling stating there is a problem with leaks and attempting to get home owners to hire dehumidifiers at extortionate rates.

We urge all residents not be persuaded to buy, hire or have work carried out on their homes by doorstep ‘workmen'. If you receive such an approach don’t let any workmen into your home under any circumstances. If you are suspicious of any callers, keep them shut out and call police immediately on 999.
