Warning over bogus pillow sellers in Dungannon area


Police have warned Dungannon residents not to fall for bogus callers pretending to be selling pillows.

The warning came after local police received reports from concerned householders over door-to-door sellers behaving suspiciously during the past week.

“Please be alert and report suspicious behaviour to us on 101, or 999 in an emergency”, urged a police spokesperson.

“Note details of any vehicles they may be travelling in and pass these on to us when you phone.

“If someone calls to your home unexpectedly, please consider phoning QuickCheck to confirm their identity. The telephone number is 0800 013 22 90. Genuine callers won’t mind waiting while you do this. If you’d like one of our ‘No Cold Calling’ stickers, please phone us on 101 and request one from the Crime Prevention Officer.”
