Rogue Traders – Trading Standards deal with a large number of complaints regarding doorstep selling and rouge traders. If you think you have been a victim of a rogue trader or doorstep conman please report this to the Citizen Advice Consumer helpline on 03454 040506 This may include bogus officials, high pressure sales techniques, or rogue traders telling you that work needs doing and then charging extortionate prices. If someone knocks at your door and tells you that you need work done on your home, don’t be forced into making a decision at the door or on the spot.
We recommend that you:
- Get personal recommendations for traders from friends, family or neighbours
- Ask for references from recent clients
- Describe exactly what you want prior to getting a quote
- Get a quotation from more than one trader
- Take your time. Don’t be hurried into making a decision
If you feel afraid or threatened call the Police on 999 or for non-urgent calls 101.
