Cold Callers

Trading Standards have made us aware that there are companies causing concerns in Somerset. These often have representatives in the area cold calling at houses. They vary in what they are offering, it can be suggesting they can handle compensation claims or talking about cavity wall insulation. Callers can be offering to provide garden services, selling goods etc.

Bogus traders often call at the door without an appointment - their work can be over-priced and poor quality.

Make sure you do not buy from or sell to callers at the door. If you have a chain on your door then ensure it is on before you answer the door to strangers.

Do not have dealings with cold callers - better to close the door and keep them outside. If you do want to have work done then ensure you get written quotations from reputable companies - consider asking family or friends for suggestions.

Remember you can also get bogus calls on the telephone or by Email - never give out ANY personal information on either.

If you think you have been subject of cold calling, bogus traders etc then please contact the police using the 999 emergency number.
