Men posing as broadband salesmen to gain access to Boston homes
A WARNING has been issued to Boston residents to beware of doorstep cold callers claiming to represent a broadband and phone services supplier.
The two men, who said they were from Talk Talk, tried to gain access at the homes of a Boston Borough Councillor and a staff member on March 5.
The men, one white and one black, asked if they could "make a ping" from a landline at the home of the first person they called upon, who is not a Talk Talk customer. They were refused entry and left immediately.
The second person they called on is a Talk Talk customer, and they said they could reduce the monthly broadband costs if they bought two additional SIM cards from them.
