Information sent on behalf of Cumbria Police

Hi all

a call came in yesterday regarding a possible bogus caller in the Westnewton area reporting to be from Home Group.  The male was invited into the property after showing a piece of paper with Home Groups logo, address details on letter headed paper.

The male did not show any formal ID and police would like to trace this person, please be advised do not let anyone into your property without showing proper ID, as a second line defence ask the person which office they are from and ask for a contact number to ring to verify why the person is calling at your property.

Have you been approached by such a male purporting to be from home group, the male is described as being 50 - 60 years of age, heavy build, driving a large black car.
