Doorstep Fraud – Be Wary

Doorstep Fraud involves criminals knocking on your door and unexpectedly offering goods or services. Fraudsters convince you to pay for goods or work on your home, which is often overpriced, or poor quality or is not even carried out. In many cases the work they’re offering isn’t even needed on your home.

How to Protect yourself from Doorstep Fraud:
-Always ask for identification before letting anyone you don’t know into your house.

-Check credentials, including a permanent business address and landline telephone number. The mobile phone numbers given on business cards are often pay-as-you-go numbers which are virtually impossible to trace.

-Take control by asking the questions. Ask for references from previous customers or to see examples of their work.

-Don’t sign on the spot – shop around. Get at least three written quotes to make sure you’re not being ripped off.

-If in any doubt, ask the person to leave or call Citizens Advice on 0808 223 1133

Two centuries in jail for East Midlands gang responsible for multi-million-pound drugs plot | Leicestershire Police (

Drugs are a serious problem nationally with many offences committed to fund drug habits.  The dealing chains are long and complex, beyond the resources of local officers, requiring dedicated force and regional teams are to investigate them.  Based in Leicester, this case is an excellent illustration of a complete operation (22 members and £20m value).  Many of the drugs involved would have found their way to Rutland streets and residents.  The severe sentences issued demonstrate the serious view taken by the court.  In addition to the imprisonment, officers will now try to identify and seize money or other assets gained by the offenders from their crimes under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002.
