Skelmersdale Police have received reports of 2 males knocking on house doors claiming to be from BT and exclaiming that they need access to the property immediately to fix a phone line problem.

These males do not represent BT, have no ID cards on them and appear to be targeting vulnerable individuals who are living alone. This card has been pushed through a letterbox promising to return.

Please make your loved ones aware and remind them that they do not need to let strangers in to their house. Always ask for ID, and if in doubt, call the company which they claim to represent (But don’t call any phone numbers they give you themselves).

If you have someone trying to gain entry to your property, you can call police on 999, or report any other suspicious sightings on 101.
