We have been made aware today (Friday 25th January 2019) of a potential bogus caller in the Maryhill area and would urge all of our customers to be vigilant.

Bogus callers try to get into your home or obtain personal details by pretending to be someone they’re not.

Every time a Maryhill Housing representative (whether they are a staff member or a contractor) calls at your home, he or she should have photographic identification on them.

Always ask to see the identification badges of anyone you answer the door to.  If you are still unsure you can contact us to verify their identity.

Only let callers in if they have an appointment and you have confirmed that they are genuine.

There is no reason why anyone should ever enter your home against your wishes – if anyone attempts to do so using force you should dial 999 right away.

If you are concerned that a bogus caller may be operating in your area please contact us as soon as possible on 0141 946 2466 or call Police Scotland on 101.
