please maintain your vigilance in relation to rogue traders operating in our area. There are regular reports of cold callers making phone calls and visits to residential addresses purporting to be from reputable companies. If anyone contacts you offering any kind of building repair or service, please take details (names, addresses, phone numbers, etc) and use the internet and trading standards to check out the credibility of the company concerned. We have had reports of individuals who falsly use a company name to promote their business and to try to obtain money ofr work which is not necessary. PLEASE keep an eye on any of your elderly or vulnerable friends, neighbours and relatives to help prevent them from becoming victims of such scams, and report any such activity to Police and Trading Standards.
PC 21961 David Tester
