Beware bogus workmen

POLICE officers in Angus are again asking householders to be on their guard against cold callers and bogus workmen who arrive at their door unannounced and offer services, such as gardening, hedge trimming, etc.

They can adopt a high pressure sales technique and it is often the homes of the elderly who are targeted as the most vulnerable.

Tayside Police receive complaints from householders who have been left out of pocket due to so-called workmen.

Please report any such crimes or other suspicious activity to Tayside Police on 0300 111 2222 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
