Rogue Traders

Alert message sent 17/11/2020 18:44:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

Police have been informed of Rogue Traders operating in the Awbridge area.
Some elderly residents have been called on with suggestions that the Traders may return at a later point to start work.
They have been sighted in the area between Wednesday 11th to Friday 13th November 2020. If you have been subject to pressured selling from cold callers please contact the police and quote reference 44200440529.

Police Constable 3672 Tristan Pugh is the beat officer for the Awbridge area and says:

“We would like people to be vigilant and to report any suspicious activity to us by calling 101 or reporting to police at Hampshire Constabulary's website.
“Remember, never employ passing traders and never pay any money up front. In suspicious circumstances residents may be quoted a price for services, which is later grossly inflated when the work is done.
“If you are considering having work done to your home or garden, reputable companies will always provide correct invoices and full agreement of the work needed an to be carried out.”
