Cold Callers Active In Nottinghamshire

Alert message sent 05/12/2019 17:29:00

Information sent on behalf of Local Authority

We have had reports of three men approaching a school claiming to be from the Council and stating that they have excess concrete left over to be able to fill in the pot holes on the school drive.

The price that was originally quoted then escalated substantially and the men became verbally aggressive when the school refused to go ahead with the work.

This is an approach that cold callers have also used in the past to try and get people to agree to having work done at their home, often the price then escalates from what was originally quoted.

Trading Standards advises against entering in to any contracts with cold callers.
