Bogus callers target homes

Have your say

Residents in Midlothian are being urged to be vigilant after homes were targeted by bogus callers.

Two people have contacted Midlothian Council to say bogus workers claiming to be from the local authority offered to carry out work at their homes.

The local authority’s trading standards spokesman, Councillor Russell Imrie, said: “Council workers will always carry identification and can produce it for residents to check before carrying out work.”
