Cold call warning
10:13am Thursday 29th August 2013 in News
POLICE are issuing a warning about cold callers after a Bury resident was asked to pay for work they had not requested to be done.
A man who said he had cleared the gutters around the house asked for £20.
However, the resident refused, and did not see a vehicle or ladders.
The male is described as white, around 30 years old, and was wearing a short sleeve navy sweater with a collar and light coloured trousers.
Police are advising people to refuse work from unwanted callers, and instead contact Bury Trading Standards who provide a free list of registered traders.
