Beware Cold Callers re Covid-19

Alert message sent 04/04/2020 13:33:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch


This is a message from Wycombe District Neighbourhood Watch in Flackwell Heath

Information received from a local scheme co-ordinator.
 
Be on the look out for Cold Callers trying to sell you things such as protective masks, hand sanitizer or other such "in demand" items. Do not buy from Cold Callers/Doorstep Sellers under any circumstances, as unfortunately they are likely to be selling you either fake products or trying to get into your home. Also, there are reports of people knocking on doors claiming to be dealing with the Coronavirus asking for information for the NHS. Again, this could be a distraction technique used to try and gain access to your property.

Unfortunately there are people who will try to take advantage of vulnerable members of the community, especially in times such as this. Let's look out for each other. Please spread the word to family, friends and neighbours who may not receive Alerts. 

If you haven't got one already, we suggest putting up a sign next to your front door to say "No Cold Callers". If you don't have one, just make your own, or you can try ordering one from the website below:

Look out for each other and stay safe!  Stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives.
