Dear Ward Member,
I would like to bring to your attention that at present due to the improving weather we are experience a rise in artifice burglaries. On this occasion unknown males are attending the home address of our venerable elderly victims who mostly live on their own stating that they are doing work at the neighbouring property and require access to their garden in order to carry out the works, or the unknown males are persuading them that they had an appointment for that day to attend and carry out works in the garden. If access is granted whilst one of the males is showing the resident what work they will be doing the other males they are in company with are entering the property and stealing any cash and jewellery they can find.
Can I please ask that you remain extra vigilant and should you know any elderly or vulnerable people could you please look out for them so that we can try to ensure that nobody else falls for this scam.
Lastly could I please ask that should you receive any leaflets regarding tree surgery through your door could you please forward them to myself so that I can look into the company to ensure that they are legitimate.
Many Thanks in advance for your assistance. Should you have any questions then please do not hesitate in contacting me.
