Rogue Trader Alert: Door to door fish sellers – 30 August 2018

Residents need to be on their guard as we have received reports of people selling fish door to door in west and north Norfolk.

Reports over the last week have included:

  • Three men cold calling in the Downham Market area
  • A man cold calling in the Holt area
  •  A man driving a small red Ford van and wearing a long white coat going door to door in the Smallburgh area

In the past these type of sellers have been known to use high pressure sales tactics and there have been issues with the quality of the fish being offered, whether the type of fish is as claimed, and whether it has been appropriately stored for transportation.

It is possible these sellers may move on to other locations within Norfolk.

We advise you never to deal with cold callers and never be pressurised into buying on the doorstep.

If you are approached by these sellers or see them in your area please report it to us via our partners the Citizens Advice consumer helpline on 03454 04 05 06 or to Norfolk Police on 101.
