Bogus Caller Information

Our December 2014 speaker, Geraldine Maclaine informed us of 'Bogus Callers' and what we can do in order to keep safe. Her advice is if you have any doubts, do not allow the callers into your home.Keep the caller at the doorstep until you check them out, the number on their card may be false so use these numbers to check up on them: Citizen's advice 08454 04 05 06, Water-Thames 0845 9200/Essex 0845 7820 999, British Gas 0800 072 8625, BT Phones 150 or 0800 800 150, Ilford Police for non-emergency reporting 101, Action fraud for hoax calls from banks etc 0300 123 2040 or if in doubt 999.
