Scam Warning

Alert message sent 07/09/2019 21:26:00

Information sent on behalf of West Mids Police

Good evening,

It has been reported that a man in a white van has been knocking doors in the area using high pressure sales tactics to scam people into buying overpriced fish in bulk. The fish may well not be fit to eat because the packer labels have been removed so there are no use by dates or ingredients.

Please note that it is a risk buying food on the doorstep from an unknown trader as the food may be of poor quality or overcharged. If you have any concerns about door-to-door sellers please do not hand over any money or invite them into your home.

If you notice anything suspicious please report it on 101.

Best wishes,
