Police remind public to be cautious following reports of possible bogus callers

Issued by Police Scotland

Police in Ross and Cromarty have received reports of possible suspicious activity involving people selling items or services door to door in the North Kessock area and would advise people to take care when approached without a prior arrangement.

It is appreciated that such callers may be genuine, however Police Scotland would like to urge the public to always check the identification of any such caller and never leave people unattended in your home.

Householders are advised not to give personal or bank details. If they are unsure of callers' authenticity, it would be best to decline them entry to the home.

The public are asked to report any suspicions that they have regarding callers to their homes or the home of any other persons in the Ross and Cromarty area to their local police station on 101 or alternatively to contact the Trading Standards office on 01463 228 700.
