Carrick MP backs campaign to stop rogue traders

Labour MP Sandra Osborne has backed a new Office of Fair Trading Campaign which aims to empower older or vulnerable consumers from being the victims of rogue Doorstep Trading.

Sandra said: “I am more than happy to highlight this very worthwhile campaign so that elderly and vulnerable residents as well as their families, friends and carers have an increased awareness of the issue of rogue doorstep trading.

“This campaign provides consumers with practical tips such as being wary of time-limited exclusive offers that need to be signed on the spot as this can purely be a high pressure sales tactic.”

Sandra said that further information about the campaign can be found by phoning the Citizens Advice Consumer line on 0845 404 0506 or visiting the website www.adviceguide.org.uk
