Householders urged to report emergency cold callers

Householders affected by severe weather are being warned to be on their guard against cold callers.

Cumbria Trading Standards say that callers may get in touch with residents and offer to carry out emergency work.

Cold callers can often use persuasive tactics to get people to agree to have work done.

Anyone having difficulty in finding a reputable tradesman should visit Trading Standards’ ‘Buy With Confidence’ website at buywithconfidence.gov.uk/sitepages/bwchome.aspx.

If you are approached or contact by a cold caller then report it to Cumbria Police on 101 or the Citizens Advice consumer helpline on 08454 040506.
