Neighbourhood Watch Notice

The Police and Trading Standards would like to remind everybody of the dangers posed by doorstep callers. Recent examples have included:

  • People offering to lay tarmac.
  • People offering to carry out hedge trimming or other gardening work.
  • “Antiques dealers” offering to buy articles.
  • People selling power tools in rural areas.
  • People claiming they were dealing with an emergency affecting the water supply.

Householders are reminded to consider very carefully before purchasing services from unsolicited callers. Work may be badly completed, the price may be increased unexpectedly and it may be impossible to trace the service provider when problems occur. There is also the potential for fraud or distraction burglary.

Use the doorstoppers code:

  • Stop – do they have an appointment?
  • Chain – ensure this is in operation before opening the door.
  • Check – ask for and double check any identification offered. Confirm any telephone number given against your own telephone directory.

If you are wishing to sell articles, use recommended reputable traceable sources only. Obtain several quotes and if the dealer needs to attend your property try and have a friend or neighbour present when the valuation occurs. Do not agree to a doorstep sale on the spur of the moment.

If in any doubt, or suspicious of callers, telephone the police as soon as possible.
