We have received reports of a bogus caller targeting houses in Chesterfield claiming to be from the council.
Council staff visiting residents homes will always carry official identification.
Please ask to see the ID and if you are not sure, contact the council on 01246 345345 to check the caller is genuine.
Any residents who receive a call, should contact Derbyshire Police on 101.
