A man and woman called to the home of a Council tenant on Friday evening last claiming that he owed rent arrears to the value of €1,400 and demanded that it be paid immediately. No money was handed over. We have asked this person to report this matter to the Gardaí.
This is the second incident that has been reported to the Council in the last number of weeks and we are asking all householders and business owners to be vigilant of this type of activity.
Council staff carry identification badges at all times and it is only in limited circumstances that staff will call to a persons home or to a business owner without prior engagement or appointment.
