Suspicious Callers in the area
On 18/10/10 Two males were knocking on doors in the Basingstoke rural area claiming to be from Southern Electric.
They were offering what they said was a new service to Southern Electric key meter customers and asked a resident for money at the door so they could top up her meter.
This isn't a service that Southern Electricity provide and they are aware that bogus cold callers have been in the area recently.
1st Male: White male in his 20's, wearing black trousers, black fleece, short/shaved hair.
2nd Male: White male in his 40's, Brown Hair going grey in a side parting style, wearing grey suit, white shirt, red tie.
Both males were carrying black clip boards.
They got into a new looking small silver car - no further details.
Please be mindful of this as they do travel the County and report any such 'visits' to Police asap.
