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 when a bogus caller will gain entry on a pretext or will create a distraction so that their 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 and chain limiter. Check identity where appropriate and do not leave strangers unattended at your doorstep. Ensure your backdoor is locked when you answer the front door. Remember when in doubt keep them out.
