Estate Agent Scam

We have been informed that a Person in Roade Village received a phone call saying the caller was from an Estate Agent and he was calling to confirm the viewing which had been arranged. This view was for a house in Northampton and that the seller was really happy that they finally had a viewing.

The Roade Resident informed the caller he had not arranged to view a property and did not want to move and hung up the phone

It is believed that this may have been a ploy to get the resident from Roade to leave his address which may have left the property vulnerable to a break in.

Please do not give details and if you know something is incorrect please put the phone down to stop the conversation this is not rude but will help to protect yourself. If you know the number this call has been made from or any other information please call the police at the time so we can make any further enquires

Thanks Tara
