Kent Trading Standards have received a report regarding an elderly consumer in the Swanscombe area who received a visit from a man in a yellow jacket purporting to be from a utilities company  claiming that there were to be gas mains replacement in her street.

 

The man requested various personal information from her but fortunately she eventually realised that the man was bogus and closed the door.

 

Kent Trading Standards warn consumers to be very wary of anyone cold calling and requesting entry to your home or asking for personal information. If you are not expecting a visitor, use the door chain, door viewer or window to check who it is.
