People in South Holland are being warned about bogus telephone calls from someone claiming to be from “BT” about work needing to be carried out at their homes.

The caller states that extension cables need to be laid along the drive by workman “the next day”.

A Lincolnshire Police spokesman said: “BT will not send a team of workman the ‘next day’ as all their work is scheduled in advance.

“Do not enter into a conversation with these persons but simply replace the receiver and report any calls to Lincolnshire Police on telephone number 101.”

You should quote incident 207 of June 3 when calling police.
