Most people who call at your home will be genuine. But sometimes, people turn up unannounced, with the intention of tricking their way into your home.They are known as ‘ distraction burglars’ or ‘ bogus callers’, whose only aim is to get into homes to distract people and steal their money or valuables.You should always be aware when someone you don’t know calls at your door.


Public Urged to be Vigilant Against Fuel Theft

Telephone scams

Bogus calls designed to convince you to hand over your credit card or bank details are a real problem.


Personal Possessions

A thief only needs a moment to make off with your valuables. Your coat hung up in a restaurant, your briefcase beside your chair, even your cheque book and cheque card left on the table while you pay the bill - are all vulnerable if you look away for a second. So try to be careful at all times.
