Alert message sent 03/07/2020 14:20:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Hello residents,
                        please see below information.
Rogue traders cold calling in the Borough
Halton Trading Standards have been made aware of rogue traders operating in the Borough in the past few days. They are offering to carry out work on consumer’s driveways, in particular sealing concrete driveways. The traders are reported to have tried to start the job before the consumers have agreed to have any work carried out.
Halton Trading Standards advice is never to deal with cold callers, if you do need work carrying out, try to get written quotes from at least three different contractors before you decide on one.
If you think you have been caught out by a rogue trader, please contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline who will forward your details to Trading Standards.
If you or somebody you know has been caught out by a scam or fraud please contact one of Halton Trading Standards specialist officers, Linda or Sue on 0151 511 8785 or 0151 511 8775, who are already working with people in Halton who have lost thousands of pounds to scams.
