The week commencing Monday 17th October 2011 is ‘National Rogue Trader’s Week’ where the Police and Trading Standards pro-actively target the criminals who con people into paying high prices for low quality work.
Please be aware of any tradespersons in your area, particularly if they are working at elderly or vulnerable people’s homes. If you have any suspicions or concerns please ring the Police on 999 in an emergency or 101 at any time other than an emergency, so that we can check them out. If you are thinking of asking a tradesperson to work for you either use someone recommended personally to you or use the Trading Standards Approved Traders Directory available on 01225 396 753.Leave a comment
