Bogus Caller Alert

An unknown offender has called at an address in Glascote and asked to read the electric meter inside the house.

The resident told him that he had a bill last week.  The offender then said that he was from the Electric Board.  The resident knew that he was with British gas.  The offender then said “Oh yes!  I did mean British Gas.”  The resident still did not let this male into his house.

Well done that person for being alert.

The male is described as; 5′ 10” with a big build, wearing navy blue and a high-viz jacket but with no ID and no British Gas logos and wearing a woollen hat.

Keep on your guard!  If in doubt, keep them out!
