Spread the word about bogus callers

Please help spread the word about bogus callers to your families, friends and neighbours.

The Safer Brentwood Partnership - of which the CCG is a partner -  has issued an alert urging residents to watch out for bogus callers following a number of distraction burglaries in the Basildon, Brentwood and Thurrock areas, by a group of males posing as Police Officers.

They have fake but very convincing Essex Police Identity Cards and use these to trick and scam their way into vulnerable people's homes with the intent to steal cash and valuables. They have to date mainly been concentrating on elderly females, but everyone is at risk.

If anyone calls at your property posing as a police officer please do not let them in without first checking their identity. Please telephone 101 to verify that the person at your door is a bona-fide officer.
