Rogue Trader Alert: We are warning residents to be aware after reports of doorstep cold callers in Norfolk.
We always advise:
• NEVER deal with cold callers looking to undertake work on or around your property
• NEVER agree to have work done by somebody who is ‘just passing’ or take their word that it needs to be done at all
• NEVER allow a cold caller access to your home, roof or gardens even if they are offering to do tasks for a small fee or free
• When looking to have work done on or around your property ONLY deal with reputable companies you have researched and chosen yourself and have obtained a written quotation from before commencing the work
It is possible these doorstep cold callers could move on to other areas of Norfolk.
You can report doorstep cold callers operating in Norfolk to the police via 101 or via our partners Trading Standards on Citizens Advice consumer helpline 0808 223 1133.
