There have been instances of rogue traders visiting addresses in the Lincolnshire area during the last few days. On Friday 13th February a man was cold-calling at properties in the Skegness area offering to supply and fit “rubber driveway coverings”. He visited one address three times and attempted to pressurise the occupant into buying from him. On one occasion he entered the property uninvited through an insecure door.

There have also been reports of fish-sellers requesting unreasonable amounts of money from residents.

PLEASE DON’T OPEN THE DOOR TO ANYONE UNLESS YOU KNOW WHO THEY ARE. IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE BEEN VISITED BY A ROGUE TRADER PLEASE CALL POLICE ¬†
