‘Cold callers’ could be active in your area

Doorstep callersNow that the lockdown restrictions are being eased, the Consumer Association (Which?) is warning residents to be on their guard for an increase in cold callers on your doorstep. These operators might be offering repair jobs such as gutter cleaning, roof repairs etc.

You are advised not to use cold callers as they may suggest that more work is required than initially stated. They will probably charge much more than usual and the work may be of an inferior standard.

If you feel intimidated by these people or have a complaint, please contact Trading Standards on 0808 223 1133.
