"If anyone suspects that jobbing builders, gardeners or roofers are doing work for an elderly person, perhaps a neighbour, then please give the police an opportunity to check it out by calling us at the time.
"Please don't leave it to someone else to call. If it is all in order then we have lost nothing, but one call could save someone from being the victim of crime."
