Cold callers in Sutton-in-Ashfield

Alert message sent 10/06/2019 13:09:00

Information sent on behalf of Local Authority

We have had reports of three men speaking to residents and delivering leaflets in relation to paving. We have been advised that these men were very persistent in trying to secure the work with the residents that they spoke to.

Trading Standards never recommend employing a trader based on a cold call, whether in person or over the phone.

If you are considering having work carried out on your property make sure that you get three quotes from reputable traders.
