Suspicious Activity Duston Northampton

Posted: Wed, 24 Feb 2021 10:01 by Parish Office

We've recently had some concerns raised that two persons have been acting suspiciously around the Park Lane area of Duston, Northampton whilst seen to be delivering leaflets.

Trading Standards advice is never to buy goods or services from a cold-caller on their doorstep, even if it is claimed that the work needs doing as a matter of urgency. More »

Instead, homeowners should find a Trading Standards approved trader to carry out any work through the national 'Buy With Confidence' scheme or 'Trustmark', the Government Endorsed Quality Scheme.

Northamptonshire County Council, in partnership with Northamptonshire Police, can also provide 'No Cold Calling' stickers for residents. These are available by calling the Citizens Advice Consumer Service on 0345 04 05 06. They can also provide you with advice about your consumer rights.

If you're worried or suspect that doorstep rogue traders or distraction burglars are operating in your community or targeting someone you know, please call our Doorstep crime Action Network hotline: 0345 23 07 702.

If a crime is in progress, call 999 now.

If you know anyone who's elderly or vulnerable, you can also pass on crime prevention advice as seen on the link below to help prevent them becoming a victim of doorstep crime.
