Beware of Bogus Callers

We have received a number of calls in the Peebles area regarding possible bogus callers attempting to sell goods at home addresses sell tools from a white transit van.

We have very limited details regarding these males, however we would like to take the opportunity to remind the community that Police Scotland do not recommend dealing with cold callers for property maintenance, home repairs and purchasing goods.

Top Tips

• Be on your guard if someone turns up unexpectedly
• Never let someone you don’t know into your house
• Always ask for ID but remember it can be faked

If you feel threatened or safe call the Police on 999. If you see something suspicious or want further advice contact the police on 101.
