    Did they offer to tar your driveway, mend your roof or "landscape" your garden as well?

    Bogus workmen and the likes use all sorts of indicators to pick out a home lived in by elderly people. I would wonder if there is something that they have seen to make them think that elderly people stayed at your house. On realising that your wife was not elderly they have come up with an excuse for knocking the door. Did they look like workies? Did she see them leave in a vehicle? Apart from what you have said on here is thee anything else that your wife noticed about them. I would think worth phoning the local Police about and just in case I would also make sure that your landy is well secured.

    Included below is an email I received from Thames Valley Police only last Friday:

    Police are asking Landrover owners to be extra vigilant following an increase in the theft of Landrovers over the past week. Recent thefts in the South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse area have occurred in Kingston Blount, Chinnor, Russells Water, Henley and Fernham, Faringdon. Four further thefts have been reported in the Swindon area.

    Please click on the link below to obtain crime prevention advice on car security & information on security devices:

    http://www.thamesvalley.police.uk/crprev/crprev-auto/crprev-auto-protectvehicle/crprev-auto-protectvehicle-car.htm

    If you see any suspicious looking people or vehicles in the area try to obtain descriptions and vehicle details, including make, model and registration number. If you have any information relating to this message, please call the police on the new national single non-emergency telephone number 101 and state you are responding to a Community message.

    Alternatively if you have information but wish to remain anonymous, please call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or online @ crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
    So if it was me, in this area at least, I would be on to the police straight away. I would also be setting up a trail cam overlooking my drive and whipping off one of the wheels as well
