Halton Trading Standards has been made aware of cold callers currently operating in the Borough, as the weather gets warmer.
The cold callers are selling educational materials door to door and do not have pedlar’s licences to carry out such selling practices within the Borough.
Trading Standards Officers’ advice to residents is never to deal with cold callers.
Halton Borough Council’s Executive Board Member for Trading Standards, Cllr Dave Cargill, said: ” If you or somebody you know has been caught out by a scam or fraud please contact one of our 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.”
If you need advice on anything else please contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline or 0808 223 1133
