Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police


Residents are being warned to be cautious of cold callers impersonating Local Authority / Council officers in the Oxfordshire area.
All council officers should have an ID badge available and be more than happy to show it when asked.
If concerned, you can contact the council to verify the name of the council officer.

Residents should also be aware of cold callers picking up scrap metal from properties. All scrap metal collectors must have a scrap metal licence for the local district they are collecting in. Scrap metal collectors must also have a Waste Carrier's Licence (issued by the Environment Agency). Both of these licences can easily be produced when requested, so if there’s any queries, do not engage with the collector.
