Please be aware of a potential bogus trader who is currently operating in the Edinburgh area:
A male has been attending at properties in the Edinburgh area offering fish for sale from a van at hugely inflated prices. The male purports to be from a company named 'Seabreeze' and it is advised that members of the public do not engage with this male or purchase any products from him.
The male is described as white, around 30 years old, North East of England accent, fair hair, wearing jeans and a white jacket.
If you think a bogus caller or doorstep criminal has called on you, or been in your street, report this to the police immediately on ‘101’ (non-emergency) or ‘999’ (in an emergency).
If you would rather remain anonymous, you can report any incidents to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
Suitable crime prevention advice regarding doorstep crime has been attached for your information.
Thank you for your help.
