Members of the Public Asked to be Vigilant over Cold Callers
Police are reminding members of the public to be vigilant when answering the door to
cold callers.

The reminder comes after an incident was reported of suspicious men purporting to be
from a local housing organisation in Guisborough.

The men attended an address last Thursday, 5th December, where they asked for
access and when the householder asked for identification, they said they would return
the next day.

The two men then left in a small white van.
Enquiries have since ruled out that the men genuinely attended the address on behalf of
the organisation.

PC Kim Catcheside from Guisborough Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “It is
important that members of the public are cautious when answering the door to cold
callers. People should always ask for identification, and if necessary could even
telephone the organisation or company concerned to ask if they can confirm that the
person is genuinely from the organisation. If anyone has concerns then they should
contact police on 101.”

Anyone with further information is asked to contact PC Kim Catcheside from
Guisborough Neighbourhood Policing Team on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously
