Had some visitors at Quadrant House claiming to be workmen fixing the ventilation system, step ladder and tool box in hand (very convincing)
Later on heard about others claiming to be asking questions about rent payments. Obviously changed tack with the scam.
Swiftly followed by police knocking on doors asking about questions about them.

So beware residents of SE1.
Don't let people in who have not made an appointment in writing. The QH resident I spoke to sensibly shut the door on the fraudsters.

Whilst we are warning people, there was a break-in at Styles House two weeks ago. Someone jimmied open a ground floor window late one evening and got into a flat. Residential break-ins are very low in this area, so sleep easy.
