Description

Spotting bogus officials
Bogus officials are relatively easy to spot and turn away. Bear the following in mind if you suspect that an 'official' caller may not be genuine:

Water company officials don't need to access your home to test water pressure or repair a leak. If they do need to enter your house they will first write to you to arrange a suitable appointment.
Gas or electricity company officials expect you to check their identity before letting them in. They don't mind waiting while you do so.
If you have any doubts at all don't let the caller in. Telephone the company to confirm that the caller is genuine, but use a phone number from a utility bill or from The Phone Book or Yellow Pages. Never use a number given by the caller - it may be false.
Set up a password system with each of your utility providers. This is free service and means that whenever a genuine official calls they will use your password.

Bogus workmen
Bogus workmen can be very persistent in persuading you that urgent work needs to be carried out on your property. Our advice is:

Never agree to have any work done by someone who turns up on your doorstep and says that your home needs urgent repairs. Say No.
If your home is in need of repair, use reputable workmen recommended by friends and family or firms that have previously worked satisfactorily for you.
Don't be pressurised into paying workmen before they do any work, and never accept their offer to drive you to the bank to withdraw money.

Other bogus callers
Be wary of people who knock on your door asking for a drink, looking for lost pets or asking to use your telephone.
Be cautious of unfamiliar youngsters saying that their ball is in your garden. They may be attempting to gain access to your home or trying to distract you from your front door.
