Doorstep Sellers and Cold Callers

Alert message sent 20/11/2020 08:03:00

Information sent on behalf of West Yorkshire Police


Some uninvited callers at your door may be persuasive salespeople offering large discounts and time-limited offers. They may refuse to take no for an answer and use pushy tactics.

Remember:

Don’t buy from doorstep sellers

Know your consumer rights regarding cooling-off periods. You can visit the Citizens Advice website for further information and advice at:

If cold callers are a problem in your area, you may want to consider setting up a Cold Calling Control Zone managed by West Yorkshire Trading Standards.

West Yorkshire Police also has a dedicated home security page, with lots of useful information and advice leaflets which can be downloaded.
