Comment on this story on the

The Police are searching for a male and a female who have been calling on homes in the Hounslow and Feltham area, pretending to be agents from Social Services.  After winning the resident(s) confidence, they enter the property and while one keeps the resident(s) distracted, the second will wander around the property stealing cash, credit cards and anything of value.

Targeting the elderly and the vulnerable, burglaries where thieves acting alone or in pairs visit homes using a variety of ruses to gain access is not uncommon.  Do not under any circumstances allow anyone into your home who you do not know or recognize or who are not holding valid identification.  Should anyone call asking for access into your home, tell whoever it is that you have visitors and that it is inconvenient.  If necessary ask them to return at a later time or date and ensure that if/when they do return there is someone with you.  A legitimate caller would not refuse such a request.  Whatever the excuse and however persistent callers maybe never let anyone into your home who is not carrying correct and proper identification.

If the caller(s) continue to be persistent, please call a neighbour or contact Neighbourhood Watch for assistance.
