Rogue Trader Alert

Rogue Trader Alert 

We have received information about two cold calling incidents in Norfolk yesterday:
1) In West Norfolk a consumer has reported a man driving a large van who cold called at their property stating ‘a friend’ had said they might be interested in some garden furniture. The consumer challenged as to who the friend was that the cold caller was referring to and he gave a vague response of ‘three bungalows down the road’. When the consumer said they didn’t know anyone there the cold caller left the location saying it must be a ‘mistake’.
2) In North Norfolk a consumer was approached by a man in a white van offering cheap mattresses, the consumer declined and the vehicle drove off.
Trading Standards advises NEVER to buy items or agree to have services done if approached by a cold caller.
If you see any rogue trader activity in the area report it to Citizens Advice consumer helpline on 03454 04 05 06 or to Norfolk Police on 101.
