Norfolk Constabulary – Connect Cold Callers

cc

We are warning residents to be on their guard after receiving reports of doorstep cold callers trying to sell household cleaning products.
This follows an incident this morning where a young male cold called at a property in Diss claiming he was was from a ‘youth offending team’ and was selling items ‘donated by charities to gain marketing skills’.

Our advice is NEVER deal with anyone who cold calls at your property offering to sell something.

It is possible these sellers will continue to move onto other locations in Norfolk.

Anyone sighting these sellers in Norfolk please contact Trading Standards through the Citizens Advice consumer helpline on freephone 0808 223 1133 or to Norfolk Constabulary via 101.

If you feel intimidated or sight these cold callers and are concerned for vulnerable neighbours call 999.
