Norfolk Trading Standards are warning residents to be on their guard after receiving reports of a doorstep cold caller in the Broadland area offering tree surgery work.
The cold caller is driving a plain white transit style van and appears to be targeting elderly and vulnerable residents and offering to undertake work on trees at their property.
It is possible this Rogue Trader could move on to other areas in Norfolk.
Trading Standards advises never deal with cold callers looking to undertake work on or around your property. If you are looking to have this type of work done only deal with reputable companies you have researched and chosen yourself and have obtained a written quotation from.
Anyone concerned about possible rogue trader activity in Norfolk can contact Trading Standards through our partners the Citizens Advice consumer helpline via their online reporting form or by telephone on 03454 04 05 06.
