If you think callers are bogus, do not let them in.
Ring a neighbour. Just give the company a ring to check the caller’s identity before opening the door. Ring 999.
Trading Standards advise people to:
If a trader knocks at your door do not agree to on-the-spot house repairs or
sign anything under pressure.
Check the trader’s identity.
Be wary of special offers or warnings that your house is unsafe.
Do not make snap decisions. Take time to talk to someone you trust before
you make a decision.
