Rogue Trader Alert from West Kent Police

Posted on 9th May, 2017

West Kent Police have sent the advise below relating to rogue traders.

 

Do not deal with doorstep callers offering work on your home or garden. In one incident a 'trader' inspected the houseowners roof and reappeared with a dead squirrel stating the roof was infested.  He demanded £300!

. Use reputable traders who are members of the KCC Trading Standards approved trader scheme, run in partnership with Checkatrade.

. Ask for quotes in writing and check that the tradesperson is from the company they say they are from.

. Ring at least three traders to get a feel for an average price for the job.

Call 101 to report any problems involving suspected rogue traders or call the Citizens Advice Consumer Services Consumer Direct on 03454 040506.
