Door to door sales – Elderly/disabled targeted

August 3, 2017

We have received information regarding door to door sales people operating currently in the Charnwood area.  They are targeting elderly and disabled residents and selling goods at very much overinflated prices.  We have been informed about one elderly lady in Mountsorrel who was conned to buy a mattress for £1,200.00 which has been estimated to be worth £100.00.

As always, be very wary of uninvited doorstep sales people and please keep an eye on elderly or disabled neighbours and relatives.
