Shirley South Safer Neighbourhood Team – Be Aware of Doorstep Scammers

Please be aware of people knocking on your door offering jet washing and gutter clearing services.

There have been at least 2 incidents on East Way yesterday, whereby 3 white males and 2 younger ones in their late teens and the older one in his 40s or 50s, all with an Irish accent have approached home owners and offered their services for jet washing and gutter clearing.

These males have done the bare minimum, if anything at all. The flyers which they hand out were stolen from a local café. These males state that they can only take cash.

Please BE AWARE. We are giving this information in the hope that no other resident falls victim to these scammers.

Report crime by calling 101 or in an emergency call 999.
Remember, you can also report crime online on the website:
