Rogue Traders

Alert message sent 06/06/2020 09:04:00

Information sent on behalf of West Mids Police


As we start to enter the summer months we can sometimes see a rise in Rogue traders just randomly knocking on doors asking residents if they want:

Gutters cleaning out
Loose tiles refitting
Driveways cleaned
Gardens cut and cleared

And the list goes on. They very often make a bee line for our more elderly and vulnerable members of our community.

I have copied Walsall council trading standards contact details into this message also.

Contacting Trading Standards

Consumers will receive advice directly from the Citizens Advice Consumer Service. This information is shared with Trading Standards and we will monitor and asses the data received.
