Beware of Confidence Trickster

Foot-in-the-door TricksterWe have received a report from Housing Leeds that someone identifying himself as an LCC surveyor/ quality assurance man has tried to gain access to a tenants property in Adel Woods Estate. The repairs section have advised that no surveyor or quality assurance was scheduled at the address in question.

The police have been notified but could all residents be vigilant of any person saying they are from Leeds City Council and ensure you check their ID Badge.

  1. It is worth noting that Housing Leeds are using a contractor called MCP Environmental who have been calling unannounced. They are following up on letters that would have been sent out several months ago regarding an asbestos check prior to starting any kitchen or bathroom replacement. Most of these cases are where elderly people have decided they don’t want the hassle of a replacement that could also involve a full rewire of their property. Instead of notifying the MCP it would appear they are left with addresses where they think the tenant has ignored the letter and they are out visiting those properties to find out their intention. They are not breaking the NO cold calling zone as they are not selling any product to the tenant. Otherwise keep vigilant and report anything strange to the Police on 101, and also ring the number on the back of the sticker.
