On Wednesday (24th March), an elderly resident living in rural Yeovil was visited by a man claiming to work for a Loft Insulation Company. Prior to this they had received a phone call stating that their Loft insulation warranty was no longer valid as the previous company had become insolvent and they had to accept the visit to maintain the warranty. Once permitted access he was then supposedly looking at the loft hatch when the resident’s granddaughter arrived and noticed an unusual car parked on the driveway.
Upon entering the property, the granddaughter approached the male and noticed his lanyard did not contain his ID but a driving licence, he had no tools and was in poor health. The loft was not entered at any point and as such he was not left unattended with a photo being taken of the man concerned. The man left and was immediately reported to Police where enquiries are underway.
Do please remain alert to any potential bogus callers stating your Loft Insulation needs attention. How could they possibly know? If it needs work you will contact them, and if they are contacting you there is probably a good reason why they do not have enough work.
