Rogue Traders

Alert message sent 30/10/2021 22:06:00

Information sent on behalf of Notts Police


We have had a number of calls regarding door-to-door traders in the Rushcliffe South area. The males are offering driveway and patio cleaning as well as various other home repairs. Although they are carrying out the work on some occasions, they are charging way over the value of what the work should cost and are mainly targeting the vulnerable and isolated.
Following works, the price is often increased and they are then insisting on cash.
The males are pushing to take people to ATMs /Cashpoints to get payment.
-
The safest way for you to get works done is by recommendation from trusted sources.
It is never right for someone to take you to a Cash Point, bank or Post Office to get money for payment.
A legitimate trade’s person will take payment via bank transfer or cheque.
A reputable trade’s person will provide you with a written quote and allow you time to think it over.
Please take care of your neighbours, your friends and your loved ones.
This is a crime that often leaves the most vulnerable feeling even more vulnerable and isolated, not wanting to say they have fallen foul to this kind of scam.
-
If you think you are someone you know has been targeted by these kind of criminals please contact us via 101 or 999 depending on the circumstances
