Rogue Traders

We have had reports of cold calling traders knocking on doors offering to tarmac driveways. The sales tactic seems to be relating to legitimate Highways work being carried out nearby and that the equipment is handy and they my say that they have left over materials that they can sell at a cheap price, they have even said that they work for the Council to try to win trust! Surrey County Council contractors will NOT do this! Please report instances to us via the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline on 08454 0405060.

Residents in Leatherhead (and possibly other areas as well) have been receiving unsolicited telephone calls offering home security checks for ‘free’ alarm systems. The sales person has been reported to be pushy. In our experience alarms are very rarely ‘free’ as they usually come with an expensive and lengthy maintenance contract!
