Cold calling - tree cutting

Alert message sent 10/11/2017 17:16:00

Information sent on behalf of Cumbria County Council

Cumbria Trading Standards are warning residents in the Carlisle area to be vigilant of cold callers offering tree cutting services and claiming to work for Cumbria Trading Standards.

 

Cumbria Trading Standards’ advice is simple

  • Don’t let uninvited doorstep sellers of any kind into your home.  For all your goods and services it is better to deal with reputable traders operating out of fixed premises who you know and trust.
  • Look out for those who are vulnerable within your neighbourhoods and family
  • Report suspicious activity to Trading Standards or the Police.

 

If you have any concerns regarding cold callers please contact Trading Standards via the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline on 03454 04 05 06 or visit www.adviceguide.org.uk
