We have received a number calls advising that there is a company calling themselves CIS, making telephone calls in order to arrange appointment for their representatives to visit and discuss home security at a cost of £1.
CIS have advised us that they are not using this method for making appointments and we would advise that you do not give out any personal information over the telephone.
The calls seem to be targeted at the more elderly members of the community, and we would ask if you could check if any of your vulnerable neighbours have received calls, and that they do not sign up to anything they are not happy with.
