Press Release

12 June 2015

Be aware of doorstop scammers

Fareham Borough Council is warning residents to look out for door-to-door scammers offering new windows at a discounted rate.

The advice comes after a resident who lives in Newtown, Portchester, opened her door to a man claiming to be from a company called Safer Windows UK.  The salesman claims his company is currently doing work for Fareham Borough Council and is offering private residents their service at a discounted rate of 65% off, while they are in the area.

Executive Member for Policy and Resources, Cllr Seán Woodward said: "Fareham Borough Council does not work with Safer Windows UK and have never heard of such company. If you have someone who fits this description knocking on your door, please do not part with any money. Instead report them to the national Action Fraud hotline by ringing 0300 123 2040."
