Police praise excellent example of vigilance by elderly householder following bogus caller approach at house in Inverness

December 5, 2012, 4:00 pm

Police have received reports of potential bogus callers operating in the Inverness area.

One elderly resident reported a suspicious caller to Police, but instead of simply allowing them entry into their home the vigilant householder followed the correct procedure by questioning the caller credentials and seeking assistance from a neighbour rather than let a stranger into their home.

By the time the neighbour attended minutes later the caller had left the area.

Police are urging householders to follow this excellent example.
