Donegal Gardai have posted a warning to the local public to be vigilant of bogus callers coming to their doors.
The warning, posted today on the local Garda Facebook page, warns elderly or vulnerable neighbours, family members or friends against answering the door to such callers.
However, the warning does not refer to any specific incident.
A spokesperson warned “These callers may call to the door offering a service such as power washing, painting, garden maintenance or other services.
“Anyone who lives alone should fit a chain lock to their door and only open the door to people who are known to them.
“Always contact Gardaí if you have a suspicion in relation to a caller in your area and provide as much detail as possible eg.registration number of car, the direction of travel and description of the caller. #StaySafe #Covid19 #HoldFirm”Tags:
