Please do not allow anyone into your home, you feel may not be genuine. The 'Waterboard' does not exist it will be Cambridge Water or Anglian Water, and they very rarely visit customers without an appointment.

Always check callers identity, and keep your door shut until you are satisfied they are bona-fide. The correct number to check staff identity will be on your utility bill. If you are still unsure contact the Police.
