Bogus Fire Safety Check Callers

Bogus CallerAuthorities are warning London residents about people posing as fire safety officers to break into homes after the Grenfell Tower tragedy.

There have been increased reports of people trying to gain access to people's homes on the pretext of testing smoke alarms or saying that they are there to carry out health and safety checks

Be vigilant and always ask any callers to show you their identity badge.

  • Dial 999 if you're suspicious or the caller won't leave.
  • Call the police non-emergency number 101 if you're not in immediate danger but want to report an incident.

If anyone is worried they've been targeted by a scammer posing as a firefighter or fire officer, call London Fire Brigade on 08000 284428.
