Bogus CAB cold callers

Just seen this on the CAB website

adviceguide.org.uk/england/...

Please as always do the relevant checks with any person who comes to the door.

Here is a booklet to help you should you need advice on what to do (I know it is by Age Concern but it is general information to be considered)

Please be safe

IfI get troublesome callers, I just say "No spikka Engliss!" it usually gets rid of 'em!

This is truly despicable, tho' - so many vulnerable and needy people out there who are easy to cheat!
