Received from Met Police:

We have been made aware of an incident that recently occurred in the Honor Oak area of Forest Hill, where an individual attended a residential home to sell the owner cleaning products from a rucksack.

Though there have been legitimate schemes such as this in the past, could I urge you, if such an individual presents themselves to your home in this fashion to please ask for identification and take steps to confirm their identity and legitimacy of the company they are representing.

If in doubt, please contact your local police on 020 8721 2721 or by ringing 101 if deemed a non emergency or 999 if you feel you need police assistance immediately.

Yours sincerely, Michael Hill PC 195PL
