Bogus callers on the prowl

Have your say

RESIDENTS in Sheffield are being warned to be on their guard against bogus water board officials trying to gain access to homes across the city.

Police said there have been ‘a number of instances’ of bogus officials calling at homes and trying to con their way inside.

Ecclesfield Safer Neighbourhood Team, which covers areas including Parson Cross and Chapeltown, is offering residents the chance to have their streets designated as No Cold Calling zones’ in a bid to deter bogus officials from targeting them.
