Alert message sent 28/01/2020 10:54:00

Information sent on behalf of Lancashire Constabulary


We are currently investigating in collaboration with Trading Standards reports of Bogus traders who are offering a CCTV investigation to residential static homes and then carrying out substandard work at exorbitant cost.
These bogus traders are immediately engaging upon repairs and then demanding payment soon as work is alleged completed.

If you entered into the contract over the phone, online or on your doorstep, you have 14 calendar days to cancel the contract under the Consumer Contracts Regulations.
Do not allow these traders to start work until you have spoken to your site representative first and you are happy with contract and price.

Keep a copy of all letters and emails you send to the supplier of your contract.
You don't need a reason to cancel your contract. If you've paid a deposit ask for it to be returned.

if you have any concerns please contact Lancashire Trading standards County Hall, Pitt Street,
Preston PR1 0LD ยท 0345 404 0506 or Lancashire constabulary on 101
