The ‘Tip of the Week’ is to be aware of bogus callers, some burglars will try to trick their way into your home. A ‘distraction burglary’ is where a bogus caller will gain entry on a pretext or create a diversion so that an accomplice can sneak in separately.
Take precautions, do not open the door to anyone until you have checked who it is and what they want. Use your door viewer or chain limiter. Check identity where appropriate and do not leave strangers unattended at your doorstep. Ensure your backdoor is locked when you answer a call at the front door. Remember if in doubt keep them out.
