For awareness regarding suspicious cold callers

Alert message sent 11/02/2021 16:03:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary

Good afternoon,
We would like to urge you to be vigilant as we have had incidents of suspicious cold callers and illegitimate tradesmen going house to house in the Ilkeston area. They have been asking to perform works on people's properties and charging an a high price when sub-standard or no work is being done.

Please ensure that you ask for identification and check to see if they are a trusted trader and are legitimate.

Do not let them into your property if you are in doubt and please report to the Police. 
Vehicle Registration marks, details of any sign writing and any possible CCTV are excellent lines of enquiry.

Thanks and kind regards
