Anti rogue trader scheme supported
SANDBACH MP Fiona Bruce is backing an Office of Fair Trading scheme to protect vulnerable people from rogue traders.
Mrs Bruce has been delivering cards for constituents to put in their window discouraging cold callers, and is urging neighbours to watch out for each other.
She said: “While by no means all doorstep sellers are dishonest, unlawful traders can be unscrupulous and use a range of persuasive tactics to sell seemingly irresistible offers to unsuspecting and often vulnerable people in their homes .
“I’m urging everyone who knows or cares for a vulnerable, elderly person to make sure they are aware of their rights when it comes to suspect door step approaches.
“No one should feel pressured into making a rash buying decision.”
