Vulnerable Neighbours

Please look out for vulnerable neighbours.
To prevent scammers knocking on your door, you can request a No Cold Calling sticker from your local Trading Standards office or from Trading Standards Scotland. If an uninvited trader ignores the sticker, they may be committing an offence under the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008.
Here are some steps you can take to help protect yourself:
✅ Be on guard if someone turns up unexpectedly
✅ Don’t feel pressurised into agreeing to immediate work or buying a product or service
✅ Don’t agree to buy from the first person who calls
✅ Don’t pay cash up front and don't offer to go and get money
✅ Shop around if you decide you need work done
✅ Never let people persuade you to let them into your home – they may not be genuine
✅ If someone is persistent, ask them to call at another time and get a friend or family member to be with you
✅ Report them
If you have concerns about a purchase that you have made, contact Police Scotland on 101 and Advice Direct Scotland on 0808 164 6000. If you feel uncomfortable or suspicious about a cold caller in your local area, phone Police Scotland on 101.
