Bogus Neighbourhood Watch calls - beware

18 October 2016 at 13:55

The Neighbourhood Wardens have received reports that a number of residents in Nailsworth and Minchinhampton have been contacted by ‘’Neighbourhood Watch’’ offering them free security surveys on their properties. Please be aware that this is not genuine and under no circumstances should residents arrange any surveys or allow any strangers into their properties.

The only services that offer security surveys are the Police and Stroud District Council, and again if approached by anyone, clarify they have Identification from the agencies they work for.

Like most scams this is mainly targeting the elderly, so please spread the word and make friends, family and neighbours aware, if you have any doubts about who you are speaking to either on the phone or in person please contact 101 and report the incident to the police.
