Cold Callers

Alert message sent 26/03/2019 13:14:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

    Buying or selling on your doorstep can be convenient. However, a salesperson who uses clever tactics can pressurise you into buying or selling something you actually don’t want to, or something that’s poor value for money or a very poor / incomplete standard of work.
Door-to-door frauds can take many forms, including;
  • pressure selling
  • unfair contracts
  • overpriced or substandard home maintenance or improvements
  • phoney consumer surveys
  • ​bogus charity collections.
  • Money for old  gold  / watches
       Please remain cautious when dealing with cold callers, do not sign or agree on the doorstep, shop around.
     Get at least three written quotes to make sure you’re not being ripped off.
