West Mercia Police Notice

COLD CALLERS/ TRADERS, LEOMINSTER

We have received reports of three males travelling around our area touting for roofing repair work at elderly residents. The suspects attend uninvited and tell occupants tiles are their roof are loose on the roof in attempt for payment of repairs.

The males are in a white Ford Transit van displaying registration: CP03 KKG

The males leave leaflets with the name "Town and Country Roofing" containing a Ledbury address.

Please keep your eye out for any vulnerable neighbours who may fall foul to this type of incident.

How to protect yourself from bogus traders:

1. Don't be forced into making a quick decision on the doorstep

2. Get at least three quotes from local reputable companies who have reputations to maintain, and if possible seek recommendations.

3. Only deal with firms with genuine verifiable telephone numbers and addresses - beware of companies that only use mobile phone numbers and accommodation addresses.

4. Anyone who signs a contract on the door step following a visit that was not arranged (unsolicited) does have 7 days in which to cancel it by law.

5. All cancellation rights must be provided in writing to the customer at the time the contract is agreed, usually on the doorstep - it is an offence not to do so.

6. If you don't want to speak to the trader don't open your door to them - it can be hard to distinguish the good traders from the cowboys so it might be easier to keep the door closed.

7. Do not allow uninvited callers into your home.

8. Refuse to be taken to the bank to withdraw money - if you ever feel intimidated by them, close the door and call the police.
