Doorstep Crime Workshop
Today's speaker was Angela from the "Safer Group" who spoke on "Doorstep Crime".
She supplied written information and evaluation forms for the presentation as they are funded by the National Lottery.
She described a number of doorstep incidents including bogus roof repairs, fake vans and ID frauds, utilities misrepresented, false yellow pages and unnecessary specialist furniture salesmen. She noted that the M62 corridor was a main access for fraudsters.
Members were able to ask questions and get advice as the session progressed and most members found they all had some experience of some fraud attempts.
