Please make sure you follow this advice, so you don’t fall victim to bogus callers:
• STOP AND THINK! – Are you expecting any visitors or a telephone call?
•Do not let anyone into your home unless you are sure they are a genuine caller.
•Do not give out your personal details over the telephone, unless you are absolutely sure the caller is genuine.
•All North East Derbyshire District Council and Rykneld Homes’ employees carry the appropriate identification and will be willing to hand it over for closer inspection.
•Don’t be afraid to ask a visitor to wait outside or call you back until you have verified their identity.
•Where possible, we will make an appointment before we come to visit you.
• If you are self-isolating, try to use friends and family, or people you trust to undertake shopping duties for you.
• Do not hand over money to people you do not know.
