Information sent on behalf ofNeighbourhood Watch Scotland
Trading Standards Edinburgh have notified NWS of an incident late yesterday afternoon where persons were offering left over tarmac in West Edinburgh. Residents are reminded not to contract at the door and look out for neighbours.
· Don’t buy goods or services at the door. If someone offers to fix your driveway for cash – say no. · Don’t feel pressurised into making a decision. · Don’t worry about seeming rude. Genuine callers expect you to be careful · Look out for your neighbours and if concerned that something isn’t right, contact your local trading standards office or Police Scotland immediately on 101 or 999 if you feel threatened or unsafe.
