Protect yourself from bogus callers
We are committed to reducing door-step crime, including bogus callers, claim farmers and rogue traders.
Sometimes, bogus callers may say they’re from Torus (Helena Homes, Golden Gates Housing Trust or Liverpool Mutual Homes) or HMS.
Bogus callers can also contact you via the phone and with leaflets as well as visiting your home.
