Police are warning residents to take care after a string of crimes committed by bogus callers in Dundee.
An 84-year-old woman had hundreds of pounds stolen by a thief posing as a workman on Sunday at her home on Clement Park Place. A 42-year-old man has now been charged in connection with the incident.
Only a few days later a 72-year-old woman had money stolen from her home in Fleming Gardens North by a man and woman.
Police are also investigating another bogus caller incident in the same street the week before.
Tayside Police have taken to the streets in an effort to reassure residents.
Officers are monitoring the roads and will be stopping any suspicious vehicles.
Neighbours of elderly and vulnerable people are being asked to keep an eye out for suspicious callers.
Police are also warning people to be suspicious of anyone arriving unannounced at their door, or unfamiliar faces arriving in the neighbourhood.
Anybody claiming to be from a business or agency should be able to provide identification. If suspicions remain, police advice is to call the company, taking the number from a phone book and not the identification provided.
Anyone with information which could help the police investigation into bogus callers can phone Tayside Police on 0300 1112222 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
