Suspect Bogus Caller

A male knocked on the door of a resident in Fulford, he asked to see her credit card and she said "I don't have one".
She did however let the male in. He then left.

Her husband was not at home and she does still have her cards. She does however suffer with Alzheimer's and cannot give any description.
So it is not clear exactly what took place

Be sure you keep an eye on the elderly in your street and if you have any information that could help call 101 and quote 294 of the 1st.

Nottingham Knockers Warning

Dear Watch Member,

This is a general warning to residents in the Stone policing area. The police have received information that doorstep callers are targeting this area offering small household products for sale. Sometimes called ‘Nottingham Knockers' these callers may claim to be ex-convicts attempting to mend their ways, however Nottingham Knockers are not part of any recognised rehabilitation scheme.

Please warn your neighbours, particularly elderly or vulnerable neighbours, not to open the door to strangers or buy or sell on the doorstep.
Some doorstep callers may offer poor quality goods at inflated prices and if a caller is not genuine, they may be gathering information for future crime.

Please keep in mind that if cold callers don't get any sales in your area, they are less likely to return.
