Be vigilant for door-to-door sales callers
3:00pm Monday 22nd October 2012 in News
POLICE are urging residents to be vigilant after a spate of unsolicited door-to-door sales calls in Knutsford.
The town’s Rural Watch received numerous calls from residents on Monday regarding a man selling cleaning materials, claiming to be an ex-offender on a Government scheme.
Jane Thirsk, of Knutsford Rural Watch, said: “There is no such scheme in operation so don’t answer the door unless you want to buy something.”
Jenny O’Connor, who runs House, off King Street, was targeted.
On Twitter, she said: “Some guy knocked on my door in Middle Walk trying to sell me stuff from a holdall, some blurb about honest living.”
