Beware of bogus callers Beware of bogus callers

Residents have been warned against the threat of bogus callers claiming to be from the Council and attempting to gain access to properties.

A resident in Thornberry Avenue reported receiving a knock on her door on Thursday afternoon from a man claiming he represented Exeter City Council, and was there to check her smoke alarm or smoke detector.

The Council will never send anyone to a property for safety checks without a prior appointment being made, and formal identification will always be shown.

After failing to produce relevant identification the caller was turned away, and the resident informed the Council.
