Police are urging homeowners to be extra vigilant following a spate of reports of doorstep sellers in Sevenoaks and Borough Green.
Officers have received reports of people knocking on doors in both Brittains Lane, Sevenoaks and Station Road in Borough Green where they are claiming to be from youth probation schemes and also PCSO approved schemes.
The sellers are often trying to sell cleaning products at higher than average prices.
“They will use a variety of ploys to try to coerce the occupier into buying goods, claiming that they have recently been released from prison and are on a scheme for work and are working with local police and similar stories.
“I would like to remind residents to be vigilant and always ask for ID when someone knocks and is claiming to be from a scheme or company. I’d like to encourage residents to also look out for their neighbours, particular if they are elderly or vulnerable.”
Anyone with concerns relating to this type of incident can call Kent Police on 01622 604100 or emailing west.division.media.appeals@Kent.pnn.police.ukquoting 26-0967.
Alternatively contact Kent Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
