Thames Valley Police has been receiving reports of a man visiting properties claiming to be from the electricity board.
He engages the occupant in conversation about being over charged. There is the possibility that he is producing two counterfeit £50 notes to get the occupant to give him change. Most incidents have been reported on a Wednesday.
If you receive a similar visit, be sure to ask for identification. If you do not believe the caller to be genuine, do not let them in and telephone the police on 08458 505 505.
