Rogue Traders

Residents and businesses are being encouraged to report Rogue Traders who target their community.

Rogue Traders will often turn up unannounced and offer services such as Window or Gutter cleaning, Path and Driveway jet-washing, Roofing or other building repairs. They can be very persuasive and convincing in their approach and in what they say - it is easy to be taken in. However these people are unqualified for the work they offer. They are scammers who charge extortionate amounts of money for little or no work.

Be aware of the following signs if a Rogue Trader is operating in our community:

  • Pressure to agree to work being done there and then
  • Unfinished or poor-quality services
  • Upfront Cash payments
  • No traders details provided
  • Selling goods from a van following an unsolicited doorstep call
