Rogue traders operating in Bramley and Maltby

POLICE have issued a warning after rogue traders offering home improvements targeted pensioners in Bramley and Maltby.

South Yorkshire Police sent out an alert advising people living in the areas to be cautious.

A spokesman offered the following advice:

  • Lock your back door and close windows before you answer the door
  • Use a spy hole and chain to check who the caller is before you answer
  • Ask to see the caller’s ID, even if they have made an appointment to see you, and call their company yourself (not on a number they provide) to check they are genuine
  • Never leave the door open and unattended — close it until you return
  • Ask the caller to return another time when someone can be with you.
