Rogue Trader Alert – Doorstep cold callers offering ‘garden clearance work’ – 5 December 2017

Norfolk Trading Standards are warning residents to be on their guard after receiving reports of doorstep cold callers in the Rackheath and Thorpe St Andrew areas offering Garden Clearance Work.

The cold callers appear to be targeting elderly and vulnerable residents and then charging excessive fees for substandard work.

It is possible these Rogue Traders could move on to other parts of 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.
