Rogue Traders

Good evening all, 

It has been pointed out that there were a couple of spelling mistakes in my previous article, so please find the same article below but hopefully minus any spelling issues. 

‘In the last week reports have been received of two men visiting rural addresses in the county offering to undertake gardening work – such as hedge cutting or tree lopping.  Whilst many of those offering this type of work are legitimate trades people, there is a need for the public to be cautious over those who ‘cold call’ them offering to do work on their behalf.  In this particular case the public are asked to report any suspicious behaviour involving a white Ford Transit tipper van registration YT17 ZZE.  

The public are reminded that at all times, caution should be taken when entering into any agreement for any type of unsolicited work and they should ask for references or seek various quotes before proceeding.  

Further advice regarding ‘cold calling’ can be obtained through Herefordshire Council website www.herefordshire.gov.uk  

All suspicious behaviour should be reported to the Police on-line via www.westmercia.police.uk or by calling ‘101’
