IF IN DOUBT, KEEP THEM OUT!!

When there is a knock at our doors it is important that we know how to answer them safely. Most people are who they say they are and we have no need to worry. Sometimes people may call at our door who want to steal our money or valuables or tell lies about work needed to your house, garden or driveway. These people are called bogus callers or rogue traders and it's important that we know how to say safe.

They use many tricks to get into people’s homes, so it is important to follow these 3 simple steps:

Locked – We should always have our front and back doors locked at all times, even when we are at home.

Look – When there is a knock at the door, check through a window or door viewer to see who it is. You should not open the door by yourself if you don’t know who the caller is, or if you can’t see them from a window or door viewer.

Get an adult – If you don’t know the person ask an adult to answer the door.
