We’ve had a few reports of bogus callers on the estate recently and the police have also said that there had been an increase in thefts and bogus callers in the wider area in the run up to the Christmas period. We are asking residents to remain vigilant and ensure that you don’t let any bogus callers or conmen into your home, under the guise of them being part of Catalyst workforce or any other workmen.
There have been a few incidents which resulted in a burglary committed by individuals impersonating workmen by wearing protective clothing and building apparel. The incidents have been reported to the police who have taken this very seriously and are currently investigating and reviewing CCTV footage to try to find the culprits. The police have asked us to stress that these types of burglaries are rare and opportunist, and can be prevented if everyone is informed and alert.
Catalyst contractors will only visit your home after having made an appointment. All operatives are required to carry and display full photo identification at all times. If you have any doubts about the identity of anyone who says they work for Catalyst, before letting anyone into your property, please call on 0300 456 2099 and ask to be put through to the Wornington Green Team.
