Duster sellers

Alert message sent 12/10/2017 16:10:00

Information sent on behalf of Lincolnshire Police

Hello from Gainsborough Rural South Team

Today we had a report from a member of the public that the door knockers selling dusters etc were active in Upton and Willingham by Stow, they are visiting most of the rural villages.  They usually carry a large black bag.  . You do not have to open your door in fact it is safer to open a window if you really feel the need to speak with them or any other cold callers.  They should carry a valid Pedlars licence to sell in this County, a picture of themselves is not ID to qualify for that. It has been reported that they are rude and very pushy.  You do not have to buy anything from them nor should you feel pressured into buying from them.  Please ring 101 and if possible give descriptions, whereabouts and if there is a vehicle connected.

Thank you
