Agressive cold calling

Alert message sent 04/08/2019 10:16:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch


To all Bognor Regis, Aldwick, Pagham, Bersted, Felpham & Middleton NHW street Coordinators.

The NHW Area Coordinator for Aldwick has reported incidents of aggreesive cold calling being undertaken by a couple of young men operating from a van marked ASSURED ROOFING who are knocking on doors and in cases of elderly persons stating that urgent house or drive repairs are required.

In one case an elderly lady under duress paid £1000 and another resident refused to pay £800 for a minor repair in the drive even though subjected to threatening behaviour.

Both Sussex Police and Trading standards have been notified.

Please reinforce the message in your street`s community to never employ passing traders who cold call and never feel pressured to say yes, always say NO.

Regards

Drew Millar NHW mobile 07484861710.
