The sick bogus water officials who are preying on flood victims
Criminals are taking advantage of the recent flooding to pose as bogus water officials.
A number of Thames Water customers have reported suspicious callers claiming to be from the water company visiting their homes and trying to gain access.
None of the residents visited have allowed the bogus callers in but the company is warning people to be on their guard.
They say that Thames Water employees "generally do not turn up unannounced" but during the flooding they have been visiting customers to check how badly affected they are.
