Bromley Trading Standards are always working hard to prevent Bromley residents from becoming victims of doorstep crime, particularly those who are most at risk in our communities. We encourage family, friends and neighbours to look out for those around them who could fall victim to rogue traders or scams.
Rogue Traders are generally those who cold call, i.e. knock without invitation and exploit the vulnerable by convincing them to pay for shoddy or incomplete repair work, charging extortinate fees for their services, or threatening residents who do not comply.
Scams are dishonest ways of ticking people out of their money or getting them to pass over private information. They come in many different forms including via post, internet and telephone.
If you or somebody you know is affected by rogue traders or a scam get the advice, support and assistance you need by calling 07903 852090.
