Warning to residents over bogus callers

Derbyshire residents are being warned about doorstep callers claiming to be from the medical equipment company Medequip.

The warning comes from Derbyshire County Council as bogus callers have been visiting homes across the county over the last two weeks offering to service medical equipment and then asking for payment.

Medequip is a genuine company which provides an equipment loan service throughout Derbyshire, but never charges for servicing or repairing any equipment, and does not make unsolicited visits.
