Shelter’s Income and expenditure figures highlighted13:57 PM, 4th February 2019

I received an unsolicited call this morning from someone claiming to work for G4S, they had seen one of our rental properties being advertised in the paper and wanted to take it on a 4 year lease and then sublet to asylum seekers. Apparently they had lost a contract with a big housing provider and were desperately trying to get local private landlords to provide housing.
They were reluctant to send any contractual information as it “ran to 45 pages” and was too much to send.
Needless to say I wasn’t interested, but the whole thing seemed very suspicious. These people did not know me so couldn’t possibly know if i was a fit landlord or even if they property being rented was suitable.
Has anybody else had any experience of this?
