One of our young residents contacted me today and quite rightly too. Please watch out for any elderly neighbours who could be vulnerable to scams. If the gentleman is genuine then there should be no issue, but best to be safe and not sorry……..
Just wanted to let you know that there was a suspicious male with Dundee accent come to our door. I reckon he wasn’t expecting anyone to be in as mum and dads cars both not here. Or perhaps he expected an elderly person to answer. He asked me if I’d thought about getting the windows painted ( very nervous when speaking).
I told him that my parents owned the house and weren’t in and his response was ‘eh I’ll go to the motor and get a flyer then’ but he never returned with a flyer. My thoughts were if he was handing out flyers then why would he leave them in the car?
I have reported to police. A similar incident happened in the summer but I never reported that at the time. Don’t want to scare anyone and it might be nothing but would rather people were aware of the situation so as they can be more vigilant. Thanks.
