Cold Callers/Criminal Traders also known as Rogue Traders

Dear Resident

Have you recently had someone knock on your door saying your roof needs fixing or your trees need cutting?

If so, did you report this to trading standards? You can do this via the citizens advice link below

Contact us - Trading Standards Wales

If you ask the cold caller to leave and they refuse, ring it in on 101 or if you feel threatened 999.

If you can, avoid opening the door to the cold caller/criminal trader. They are very good at negotiation and can be difficult to get rid of once you are in conversation with them.

If in doubt keep them out.
