Bogus caller crackdown in Brierley Hill
Would-be bogus callers are being warned off the streets in Brierley Hill in a joint operation between the police and trading standards officers at Dudley Council.
Dudley police have seen an increase in the number of calls they have received from members of the Hawbush community, in relation to bogus callers and rogue traders cold calling at houses in the area.
Signs are going up in the area warning rogue traders they will be reported if they cold call in the new No Rogue Trader Zone.
Leaflets and door stickers have already been delivered to 300 houses by police advising residents to be aware of the tricksters and signs have been mounted on lampposts in the neighbourhood.
