Cold Callers - Tadley

Alert message sent 05/08/2020 14:44:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary


Good afternoon,

We have received further reports that Cold Callers/Rogue Traders are operating in the Tadley/Pamber area. They are knocking on doors asking if they can jet wash driveways/patios or offering to do garden work both for a very high price. Those involved are targeting the elderly and vulnerable community. Please look out for your neighbours and their homes. If you see something unusual, speak to your neighbour to check all is in order or contact Police immediately.

Trading Standards strongly advise residents not to agree to work that is instigated as a result of a cold call. No paperwork is given before the work starts and no receipt is given once complete. Residents should obtain at least 3 written quotes from reputable businesses or traders who are either members of the Hampshire County Council Trading Standards Buy With Confidence scheme or a recognised trade association. Members of the Buy With Confidence scheme are fully audited to ensure their trading practices are legal, honest and fair. All members have been checked for trustworthiness and compliance with consumer protection laws. Details can be obtained by telephoning 0808 223 1133, emailing buy.with.confidence@hants.gov.uk or via the Buy With Confidence web site.
