Beware – rogue traders operating in Croydon

The following message has been distributed by Metropolitan Police in Croydon to their email lists for Addiscombe, Fieldway, Kenley, New Addington and Shirley.
“Please be aware that there are many companies plying for trade through leaflet dropping and cold calling at your door.
A couple of these companies are being investigated at present for rogue trading.
If any leaflets are posted through your door which offer driveways, tree surgery, general maintenance and cleaning, please contact the team or Trading Standards at Croydon Council. We would like to know the details of the companies using these methods of advertising as there have been links to recent burglaries in the area.”
