Door Knocking Scam

The excellent Rushington Manor Residents Association are warning local residents about a door knocking scam happening in the area.

This deserves a wider audience. I just hate criminals who prey on the vulnerable people in our community.

We have been alerted to a situation where people are calling at homes, particularly targeting older people saying they are from the ” Dept. of Home Affairs ” and need to gather info for the next upcoming national census.

They then gain access and rob householders.

They have some form of official looking ID.

Please be cautious and make older family and neighbours aware that they should be careful.
