A while ago at midday one Saturday, there was an urgent banging on the front door and shouting. My  immediate thought was that there had been a serious accident outside and blankets were needed. I opened the door and two men pushed me in. They closed the door and one of them went round the house helping himself to things whilst the other kept me in the hall making sure I didn't move. I didn't protest and just stood there until they went but I was badly shaken. They had taken my bag with wallet and cards and found my cheque book. I called the police and card protection but they had very rapidly gone on a big spending spree in the West End using all the cheques and my cards as seen on my bank statement. I was reimbursed through card protection but it was a very frightening experience which could have been much worse.
Since then I ask all visitors to phone me when they arrive before I open the door.
We see what horrific things have happened to other people when they've innocently opened a door.
