Be aware – cold callers in the area!!!!

Dear Watch Member,

We have been made aware of a number of cold callers recently in the area. On Saturday, a male with an Irish accent approached a resident in the Connahs Quay area asking if they would like their driveway done.  They replied no and the cold caller never went to any other properties in the street. We have received a report of male and female cold callers going door to door claiming to be deaf in the Buckley and Gwernymynydd areas. They claim to be selling pictures  to raise funds towards their education. They are likely to travel to other parts of North Wales

We would  like to remind residents that purchasing or using the  services of cold callers can be risky for numerous reasons. If   something goes wrong with the service, or    product, they may prove difficult to trace. Some traders will quote a price but  then ask for substantially more  money when the job has been  completed.

Some  work can  be carried out and completed  to a poor, or even unsafe standard.

Some cold  callers are also linked to  burglaries, or other criminal  activity. Police are asking for residents to be vigilant and  wary when dealing with cold callers at the door and to report any suspicious persons or activity to them as soon as possible.
