Council warns of bogus doorstep caller

Published: 6th November 2017

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council has been made aware of a bogus caller, wearing a Fermanagh District Council identification badge, who is visiting households in the Enniskillen area purporting to collect money for charitable work in another country.

The Council wishes to advise members of the public that it never collects money for charity in this manner nor has it authorised a third party to do so on its behalf.

If anyone has recently been approached in a similar manner they should report it immediately to the PSNI on the non-emergency telephone number 101.

Any contact the Council makes with the public in relation to Council services will be through personal contact by authorised staff who will have Council-issued identification. If anyone is not fully satisfied that the ID is genuine, or requires reassurance regarding the authenticity of a caller, they should make immediate contact with the Council on 0300 303 1777 to verify the caller’s details.
