Trading standards are currently dealing with an increased number of cold calling incidents leading to doorstep crime investigations. Callers are preying on vulnerable residents, who in turn have paid thousands out for home improvement works which are unnecessary or of poor quality. Often the work never takes place at all.
Please look out for your neighbours and friends. If you receive any leaflets or flyers through your door please send the leaflets to Croydon Trading Standards so that they know who is working where in the borough. Your information could help to solve a crime and to protect a person at risk of financial abuse.
Please send any flyers/leaflets to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Trading Standards, Zone B 10th Floor Bernard Weatherill House, 8 Mint Walk, Croydon, CR0 1EA
To report a doorstep crime incident call 03454 04 05 06.
