Loft Insulation Cold Callers target Elderly in Canterbury, Kent

Category: General
Posted by: shaunk

An elderly homeowner had a telephone call from someone who said he was calling from an insulation company.

 

He knew the persons name and address and asked if they wanted insulation.

 

The homeowner said they did not and the caller became very abrupt, told her not to hang up and that she needed to listen.

 

The caller said it was compulsory for them to visit and that if they would not make an appointment or open the door when they arrived that they would break the door down.

 

If you receive any sales calls where you feel you have been intimidated, hang up immediately and report the matter to the police on the non emergency telephone number 101 if you are worried.

 

Do not enter into any conversation with the caller To report any concerns you have call Trading Standards via Consumer Direct on 0808 156 2256.
