Cold Callers

Alert message sent 22/02/2018 18:44:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Dear Residents

Please be aware that Cold Callers are operating within the Warrington West area particularly around Dorchester Road, Maliston Close, Great Sankey and around Falmouth Drive in Penketh.

We have stopped the male who was asking for broken Gold, we will also be reporting him to trading standards.

Advice on Cold Callers;

One: If in doubt, keep them out. It sounds simple, but if you don't let someone in - they will go away. Don't let them pressure you into opening your door.

Two: Be prepared. Be in control. Think about what to say to any doorstep cold callers in advance. And keep a list of key contact numbers near your phone so you can check out legitimate callers using reliable contact numbers for them.  You have the right to ask all other unwanted callers to go away and not return.

Three: Call a neighbour or the police if you are suspicious of the cold caller. Contact a local relative or nominated neighbour who can help verify a cold caller. If you think someone is a rogue trader call 101. To report a distraction burglar or rogue trader who has taken your money and is still in the area - call 999.
