Yorkshire Water is warning people to beware of bogus callers after some clothing was stolen from one of its vans.
The Yorkshire Water items were stolen from a van in South Yorkshire but the fear is that they could be used throughout the region by people pretending to be from the company.
All genuine Yorkshire Water employees carry identification, and on the very rare occasions the company visits customers’ properties, this identification can and should always be verified by calling 0800 1 38 78 78. While making this call, customer should close their door on the caller. Genuine callers will have no issue waiting while their credentials are verified.
