Police are urging vigilance and appealing for information after a bogus caller visited an address in the Lowestoft area and offered to carry out work.
On Monday 29th June at a property on Prospect Road, a man claiming to be from a double-glazing company called at the address offering to clean the gutters - but had no proof of identity.
The occupants of the house refused the offer and the man left on foot in the direction of Hall Road.
He is described as in his late 60s, 5 feet 7 inches tall, balding and walked with a limp. He was wearing a dark zip-up jacket, jeans and slip-on trainers.
Officers would also like to hear from anybody else who has been approached in a similar way by those offering to carry out work.
Police are reminding residents to keep an eye on their neighbours’ homes, particularly elderly neighbours who may be vulnerable to bogus callers or rogue traders.
Anyone with any information about the incident in Prospect Road, is asked to contact Lowestoft Police by phoning 101.
