TV Aerials – scam.

We have received a warning about ‘cold callers’ who appear to target elderly persons and persuade them to have unnecessary and very expensive work carried out to their TV aerials.  It is not known at present whether the Birstall and Wanlip area has been targeted.

Our advice is as always, if you require any work to be done to your home, ask your friends and neighbours to recommend a local tradesman and to obtain more than one quotation for the cost.

Please keep an eye on any elderly or vulnerable neighbours and report any suspicions immediately to the police.
