Alert over 'bogus' broadband sales reps
12:50pm Monday 11th February 2013 in News
PCSO O’Halloran said: “A recent report from a person in Cricklade suggests that there could be bogus sales representatives in the area trying to sell broadband packages.
“The door-to-door sales person did not provide any ID or explain about the company who would be supplying the broadband, which left the potential customer quite suspicious.
“Please can I ask that you remain vigilant when dealing with door-to-door sales reps and always ask the sales person for ID and information about the company they are representing.
“If you do feel that the person is not legitimately trading, either contact us or report it to the company which they tell you they represent in order to see if trading should be in your area.”
Anyone who is concerned should phone Wiltshire Police on the non emergency 101 number or the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
