COMMUNITY ALERT MESSAGE - 9 JUNE

Alert message sent 09/06/2020 12:34:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police


COMMUNITY ALERT MESSAGE
 
We have had information that a White Ford Transit with Orange signage is currently in the Melksham area Cold Calling on residents, most recently Sarum Avenue. We are keen to speak to the driver and passengers.
 
Please if you sight this vehicle visiting you or a vulnerable neighbour, please call us on 101.
 
Here are some top tips:
 
IF YOU'RE NOT SURE, DON'T OPEN THE DOOR

You are never required to open their door to unexpected callers and it is not rude to send someone away.

Ask to see the caller's ID, even if they have made an appointment to see you, and call their company yourself (not on a number they provide) to check they are genuine.

Use a spy hole and chain to check who the caller is before you answer.
 
Display a 'No Cold Calling Home' sticker to discourage unwanted callers.
