Newcastle residents are being asked to stay vigilant after fraudulent leaflets were posted through doors advertising an ‘odd jobs service’ from Your Homes Newcastle (YHN).
There have been a small number of reports of leaflets advertising a £30 per hour odd jobs service from YHN being posted through residents’ doors in the NE4 area of Newcastle.
YHN has issued a warning that these leaflets, which were printed with the Your Homes Newcastle logo, are not official leaflets and that YHN does not offer such a service.
Residents are being advised to ignore the leaflet and do not contact the sender using the details on the leaflet.
YHN also urge residents to be vigilant of anyone visiting their home who claims to be a member of YHN staff. All YHN staff and repairs staff will wear ID badges when visiting customers’ homes and residents can contact YHN on 0191 278 8600 if they are unsure about the identity of anyone visiting their home, or call the police if they feel threatened or in immediate danger.
