Bottesford NHW Alert: Bogus Callers in Lincolnshire

Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue are warning residents to be on guard when dealing with callers at the door, following reports of two incidents where uniformed bogus callers stated they had come to check smoke alarms in a property.  The callers have been wearing old-style blue fire uniforms. 

Official Fire and Rescue employees will only call following a pre-arranged appointment and will always carry ID and be wearing the correct uniform. Always check that ID is valid and, if in any doubt whatsoever, do not allow visitors into your home. 

Call the  police on 101 to report any suspicious doorstep activity in your area.
