0300 123 1212 (Met Police)
Bogus callers can sound believable. Make sure in your own mind that they are whom they claim to be by following these simple steps:
A] Think before you open the door - use your chain and spy hole or look out of the window to see if you recognise them.
B] If you are not expecting anyone and they do not have an appointment, do NOT let them in. If they persist, call police on 999 immediately.
C] Beware of callers who attempt to distract you by claiming that they have seen something untoward in your garden or somewhere which may encourage you to leave your house - they may have an accomplice awaiting this distraction.
D] If you are not convinced of the identity of the caller, don't let them in. Ask the caller to come back later and arrange for a friend, relative or neighbour to be present on their return or ask the caller to contact this person.
E] Treat every stranger with caution. If you are worried, dial 999 immediately and ask for the police.
