Norfolk Trading Standards are warning residents to be on their guard after receiving a report of a doorstep cold caller in the Sheringham area.
In the incident a resident received a doorstep cold call from a male who claimed he was ‘part of Government scheme to check if loft insulation and cavity walls have been done incorrectly’. The resident declined the offer and reported the cold call to us.
Trading Standards advises to be very wary of claims made by doorstep cold callers and NEVER agree to services, buy items or for return visits if approached in this manner.
Impartial advice on energy saving and accessing grant schemes is available from the Energy Saving Trust.
Anyone concerned about doorstep cold calling 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.
