A message from the Police

We have recieved the message below from our Police team. Please be aware.
It has come to the Selsdon and Ballards Team attention that a number of phone calls being made from an unknown number to the residents of Farley Road and Norfolk Avenue (there may be more roads that have yet to be reported to us). On one occasion an unknown female caller asked the resident if they were likely to be in the next day after asking about an alarm system. Or on another occasion another female caller said they can pop round to talk about medical issues! All residents have tried to dial 1471 but the unknown female(s) called from a withheld number.
Could I ask all residents to be aware and pass this information on? It is more than likely that these phone calls, genuine or not, are to be made elsewhere in the Selsdon area.
The residents who have received the phone calls have been left feeling worried. If you receive a phone call where the unknown caller makes you feel uncomfortable or is asking personal questions, then you should tell the caller you are not interested and that they should not call again. You should then hang up the phone.
As we get closer to Christmas the burglary figures begin to increase and this has already begun. Please do not become a victim. Do not give personal information to unknown callers.
