City MP calls for ‘clamp down’ on small business crime in open letter to council leader

Have your say

BOGUS callers could be stopped if residents demand to see proper ID, a water firm has said.

Portsmouth Water said its staff will have photo ID, a uniform with a kingfisher logo and a vehicle with the same branding.

Managing director Neville Smith said: ‘The last thing we want is a customer’s Christmas to be ruined by a visit from a Bogus Caller who is claiming to be from Portsmouth Water.’

Call (023) 9247 7999 if you are unsure.
