I was recently approached by a resident who was having difficulty contacting Trading standards about Cold Callers in the area and there was a problem with the phone number being used. Set out below is the confirmation from Trading Standards of the number to be used. This is different to those on the Cold Calling stickers and this one should now be used.

“The 03454 040506 is the number to report matters relating to Trading Standards including cold calling. Citizens Advice will refer it on to the relevant Trading Standards if it meets the protocol.

Matters can also be reported to the Police 101 number if it’s a rogue trader/doorstep criminal.”
